How to use

Problem: Most startups fail, not because they fail to build what they set out to build, but because they waste time, money, and effort building the wrong product. Define and understand the problem you are solving as deeply and in detail as possible.

Solution: Once you understand the problem, you are then in the best position to define a possible solution. List the most important aspects only. Note, solution box acts also as your “Minimum Viable Product” (MVP).

Key metrics: Startups often drown in a sea of numbers in an attempt to bring order to the chaos of uncertainty. At any given point in time though, there are only a few key actions (or key macro metrics) that matter. At very early stage, you probably would have just one metric that matters the most.

Unfair advantage: A true unfair advantage is something that cannot be easily copied or bought.
