Inside FI: 10 Steps to a Startup Launch by @adeoressi

Posted by Adeo Ressi on 2010-08-29

Launching a startup takes a lot of hard work, and you do not know if the idea is going to be successful until it is often too late. The Institute tries to help Founders refine and test their idea before spending months or even years pursuing something that will fail.

In the following 30 minute video, ten quick steps are discussed to take an idea that you like and launch it for less than $2,000. The goal is to get to a "Ghetto Launch," where you test if you have both a good idea and a viable business. Once the idea is validated, the hard work begin.

These are the ten steps that were used to launch the Founder Institute. Since the Institute does not have an online or physical product that needed to be mocked up, we used Topicki to develop a prototype of the curriculum. Enjoy!

Special thanks to TechCrunch for covering the talk here.
