Your great (secret) startup idea — sucks!

Your great (secret) startup idea — sucks!
Even though you may be onto something but your startup idea probably sucks. See the thing is that we get so excited about our idea that we keep it close to our chest, so no one else can run with it and beat us to the punch.
Unfortunately, I have some bad news for you. There are at least 10 other people in this world who thought of exactly (or better) the same idea that you are guarding.
It is a well known fact that it is the execution of the idea that matters and not the idea itself.
So my advice to all you out there is to talk about your idea, talking with others will help you refine your idea, gather feedback and fine tune it for the launch.
So go out there and make that idea a reality. Talk to people, fix it, refine it and relaunch.
I am not interested in “waiting” for your “big idea” to be rolled out after 2 years. This world wants instant results. So build that first iteration with just one feature.
That’s what we did for Mazaydar.

  1. How much of my startup idea should I share with people?…

    Who are these ‘people’ and why are you interested in sharing your idea? Assuming you have crossed I-have-an-idea stage and have committed yourself to build a prototype I can see four sharing case: a)Usability testing with Grandma. b)Feasibility testi…
