Investor Connect Podcast

Diligencing the Demand

Hello, this is Hall T. Martin with the Startup Funding Espresso -- your daily shot of startup funding and investing.

In diligencing the demand for a startup’s product, here are some key points to check:

Is the product a nice to have or a must-have?

For customers buying the product, assess their budgets. Do they have deep pockets, or do they have average pockets?

Assess their place on the technology curve. Do they lead the way, or do they follow the masses?

Ask similar companies what they think about the product and if they would buy it. If no, ask why?

From this information, you gain an understanding of how well the product works and how customers view it for their business. 

You can then estimate the serviceable market size for the product. 

Contact existing customers and ask about their need for the product and how well it works for them.

This is particularly important for freemium products in which the user is not a paying customer. 

Thank you for joining us for the Startup Funding Espresso where we help startups and investors connect for funding.

Let’s go startup something today.
