How to Start a Tech Company 1

Tech giant Apple makes over $691,000 per minute. That’s right; per minute.

While a small business certainly won’t make that much, tech is a lucrative industry that everyone should think about getting into. But where should you even start?

If you want to start a tech company, then you’re in the right place. Read on to find out how to make your own successful tech startup!

Determine Your Product

Whether it’s a tangible product or a service, you need to determine your product first. When you can pinpoint what you want to provide consumers with, you can then see if it’s actually viable or not.

For example, if you want to create smart TVs, it’s probably not a good idea. The market’s already oversaturated and most people aren’t terribly impressed with these products.

On the other hand, if you’ve identified a unique problem and you’re confident your product will solve it, then go ahead with it!

Know Your Niche

Don’t try to dive head-first into a niche you’re not familiar with. For example, if you want to offer IT services, you should have a basic understanding of the most common network issues. If you don’t, make sure you’ve got partners and management that do.

Otherwise, you risk becoming overwhelmed with new information. And chances are, your passion and knowledge won’t be as strong as your competition.

Create and Validate a Minimum Viable Product (MVP)

You don’t have to have your product up and running when you get your startup going. Instead, you can have an MVP, which is the most basic version of it.

It should have all basic features so consumers see you have something realistic. You can then describe the later features it’ll come with and it’ll drum up interest!

Speaking of drumming up interest, you need to validate your MVP by testing through things like a pre-release signup page. If you don’t see much interest, then it might be time to abandon ship here.

Get the Right Talent Working for You

Now that you know consumers are interested in your product, you’ve got to get the right talent working for you. To make things more appealing, offer some equity (around 10-35%).

With the right board members, partners, and management, you’ll have a solid foundation for the future of your company.

Go Hard With Marketing

You shouldn’t skimp on marketing when you’re just starting out. If no one knows about you, then you’re not going to generate revenue, no matter how good your product is.

Don’t wait until the product is ready to start marketing campaigns. Start early with things like a pre-release signup page, announcements and teaser videos on social media, etc.

Make sure you’re consistent too. There’s nothing worse than generating interest, falling behind on marketing, and losing potential customers.
