Dear Entrepreneur,

There is a lot of advice out there for entrepreneurs. Not all of it is useful or clear. I know. I have started or advised dozens of startups, and I teach entrepreneurship at one of the top business schools in the world.

Often the idea isn't workable; the company will never be viable. But the entrepreneurs won't know that until they have wasted time and thousands of dollars just trying to make it work.

This does NOT have to happen to you!

Based on my two decades of experience, I have developed a 7-step process to evaluate your business idea. When you are done with this process, you will know, with a high degree of certainty, how likely it is that your idea will succeed.
