We've all heard the grim statistics on startup failure rates. Make sure you've found the "right it" by testing your hypothesis before investing countless dollars and hours pursuing your idea. Pretotyping and prototyping offer many ways to test a product or service with minimal build-out, use of resources, or emotional attachment.
Work with Kara to ensure that you are addressing the problem with the best solution possible.
