“Science has cured every disease known to mice.” – Dave Wiener

A technology or great idea has very little value until it is put into practice and made available to people who need it.

It is the job of the entrepreneur to take a great idea and figure out how to put it in the hands of customers.

That doesn’t mean the entrepreneur has to have the idea; only that she/he recognize a problem that could be solved with it.


“An entrepreneur is in the business of making things, not planning to make things. Make a prototype first. ” – Guy Kawasaki

A prototype is simply a representation of how your product will work. It can be functional but only to the point that it conveys the most important capabilities to your customer.

When you have a prototype, you can begin to get real feedback from your your customer. You may even be able to sell the prototype, which is even better.
