Where to Focus Your Startup Ideas

In searching for startup ideas here are some key points to consider:

Start with a current solution to the problem you want to solve.

Don’t change everything but instead only change one or a few things.

Focus on one or two innovations such as the business model, the platform, or the market.

Look for changes in the technology landscape and ride that wave.

Find a new technology platform that is coming up and leverage it for your solution.

Look for startup ideas that are not universally shared. 

If everyone believes in that idea, then there will be too much competition early on.

In addition to solving today’s problem, look to solve tomorrow’s problem. 

As the market grows it’s clear which problems will increase and which will decrease.

Look for startup ideas that leverage your skills.

Target a market, technology, or resources you may have that give you a competitive advantage.

Consider the essential elements of your solution and focus on those.

The grand vision is never in place on the day you launch the product.

It will take several years to reach that final vision.
