Minimum Viable Product. Everybody's got an opinion on what that means. Is your slide deck an MVP? Probably not. Our take on what makes an MVP is that it must answer these three questions:
- Does someone have a problem or pain that your product will solve?
- Can you reach those people with your solution?
- Will those people pay for your solution to take away their pain?
We think the most reliable measure of product validation is money: whether or not your customers are willing to pay you money for it.
So what makes a great MVP? How can you prove your product's worth while maintaining the "minimum" in Minimum Viable Product?
That's what this short ebook is about.
