Get Your Startup up and Running

By Wout Laban

First obvious fact: there is an

Added by Wout Laban: “Every startup idea has assumptions. Your job - as an entrepreneur - is to validate these assumptions as quick as possible. Always start with the most riskiest one, the one part of your idea that has to be right - otherwise your startup will fail.

4 How to Identify Your Riskiest Business Model Assumptions

The true job of an entrepreneur is to systematically de-risk their business model over time. While you might be really excited by your idea's potential, others don't see what you see.
