Validation: Fast, Inexpensive & Easy Ways to Test your Assumptions

Validation is hard.

Validation is possible.

Validation happens outside the office.

Validation 1, 2, 3.

  1. Identify your customersand assumptions, there are many ways to do this, I recommend the Lean Canvas, which is a simple yet effective tool to help you flush out your idea.
  • Is the customer pain big enough (is this a significant pain, that customers will care about?)
  • Is the customer pain wide enough (are enough people affected by this pain?)
  • If the answer is no to either, it may mean your customer pain is not worth solving. and if it is, it might not make you money.

Ideas that are not shared die, they don’t improve, grow, become unicorns and most importantly they can’t be validated.
