  • Aubrie
  • Aubrie what’s the pain? Why aren’t customers satisfied with current solutions? Will the problem get better or worse over time? Validate the problem via research: what do your potential customers think? And what do the experts say? How big is the problem?
  • Aubrie Present your business as the solution to the problem: describe how your solution is distinctly different from others that are addressing the same problem. Describe the degree to which your solution makes your customers lives richer or more efficient or effective. Talk about how you’ll erect barriers to entry to prevent others from quickly copying your solution.
  • Articulate your specific target market: talk about business and environmental trends that are providing your target market momentum.

  • Discuss your direct, indirect, and future competitors. Show your competitive analysis grid.
