Idea to Product
Got An Idea?
You landed in the right place.
✔️ Writing the necessary documents
✔️ Building the product
✔️ Investing 50% of the cost
Turning an innovative idea into a product is not an easy challenge. You have to do your market research, identify what your idea will bring to customers, prepare a business plan, find a co-founder and develop an MVP (don’t develop a prototype!). All of these tasks are challenging. The problem is even bigger if you don’t have the right skills or if you are working full time (not enough time).
Not having the proper support for even the best of ideas can kill them. In fact, many investors look at the founding team first before looking at the idea when considering making an investment. At FasterCapital we can help you! We become a cofounder. We help you in validating your idea, doing the market research, preparing the business plan, and even developing the product.
FasterCapital will also invest money in your startup by providing technical development per equity allowing you to build an MVP (minimum viable product) of your startup. With our program Idea to Product, we start from an early stage and we help in idea validation, market research, building the business plan and in estimating development costs.
