 Stages of Start-Up as they Develop

Stage 1: Concept and Research

A huge factor in a start-up’s success comes before the company itself ever launches. Before you do anything else, carefully research your target audience and you’re offering’s potential product-market fit.

Stage 2: Commitment

Here’s where you move from a concept to a company, putting your research into practice. Create a prototype, develop a process, and start building a team. Secure funding. Continue to refine your business model. Work towards a minimum viable product, begin initial marketing to drum up some word of mouth, then launch.

Stage 3: Traction

Traction, or validation, is typically the first year of a start-up. This is the stage where you begin to get the word out about your product and gain your first customers. Here you find out whether or not your company is truly viable

Stage 4: Refinement

In the refinement stage, typically year 2, you are receiving and soliciting feedback from early adopters, then using that feedback to continue refining your product or service.

Refinement also means refining your process, making it more efficient.

Stage 5: Scaling

Further growing your customer base, your offerings, and your company itself. In this stage, which can start at year 2 to 3 and last for years, you repeat on what’s working and put processes into place to repeat faster. Continue optimizing your marketing strategies to efficiently pull in customers and increase your conversion rates. Build out your staff and infrastructure to support your growing workload. For the smoothest scaling up, build scaling mechanisms into your business plan from the beginning.
