Four Steps to Scale: Validating Your Way From a Great Idea to a Business Model That Works

Timan Rebel

Senior Start-up Coach and Co-Founder of GroundControl

as recorded on 28 October 2021 as part of Innov8rs Connect on Foresight & Business Design

Helping over 200 startups go from great idea to scale, Timan learned there is a hierarchical order to test your most risky assumptions. As a (corporate) startup founder, you need to prove there is a problem, prove you can solve that problem, prove your customer will pay, and last but not least, prove you can scale. To do this for a longer period of time, you need some kind of process to constantly ask yourself what is currently most risky and how can we test that.

In this Ask Me Anything, Timan shared the process we use to turn assumptions into steps forward using experiments and dive deeper into the challenges of keeping focus during the journey from idea to scale.
