I just read Jason Cohen’s recent post on customer validation “Yes, but who said they’d actually BUY the damn thing?” (here). Given all the startups I’ve seen recently, this post really struck a chord. If you are starting a company or developing a new product, read Jason’s post and take his advice: Find 10 customers who will say “If you build this product, I’ll give you $X.” For medical device products, this is just a start towards early customer validation.
