A practical, opinionated guide from the team at Innovation Works to help you with everything from validating your entrepreneurial idea to launching an MVP.
This is the "how" that's missing from other entrepreneurial resources
Each recipe below pairs an important task in the journey from idea to launching your startup, paired with one or more tools that show you how to accomplish that task. These are aimed at first-time founders, but there's likely something here for companies of every size.
Launch fast. Launch cheap.
Get your MVP out there
If you don't have money to hire a team of specialists to launch your product, we can help. Each Recipe uses tools selected for:
High quality and robust feature set
Low price point or generous free tier
Popularity, so you won't need to replace them later
