Don’t just generate one idea, generate many of them.
Steps to generate a product idea:
- listen and observe for problems that people are complaning about (from your life, news, your envisioning of the future)
- validate the market for that problem (do people really have the needs? is that an addressable market? market potential)
- find a solution to that problem (ideation, brainstorming. business model, core technology)
- validate the solution (does it solve the problem? is it profitable?)
