About

This book is written after collaborating with numerous startup entrepreneurs and mentors. It has been divided into various sections. Treat it like a startup guide,which can be followed to launch and validate a startup idea.

There are no steps to create a startup but if you follow the steps mentioned, you’ll be able to validate your idea for under $100 (might vary on the idea). We’ll focus on getting paying customers and not on getting likes or followers, as an entrepreneur it’s important that we start earning from day one and make the business self sustainable.

We’ll begin with searching for an idea, move on to creating the landing page/ prototype, then focus on driving customers to the product page and see if they are willing to pay for the service.

This process can take anywhere from 7-15 days (7 days are more than enough, but some ideas might take longer). Here is a major breakdown of the processes that we’ll follow and validate our startup-business model.
