Launch with Traction

Many entrepreneurs build backwards,  investing heavily in launching their product before confirming that there is market demand for it.

This backwards approach often leads to wasted resources, with startups struggling to find customers and secure investment after their product is built.


The Bootstrap First Incubator prioritizes your success from day one. Before you commit significant resources, we guide you through a critical three-step process:

(1) Business Model Design: Ensuring your business idea is feasible.

(2) Problem and Demand Discovery: Verifying that there is a customer base that experiences the problems you are solving.


(3) MVP Design and Launch: Crafting a product or service that directly addresses the needs of your early adopters and converting a percentage of your potential customers into paying customers.

The Result? You launch your business confidently with products that are in demand, securing paying clients and customers from day zero—saving potentially hundreds of thousands in development costs and accelerating your path to sustainable growth and future investment.

Business Model Design

Is your solution truly addressing a pain point? How does it stack up against existing solutions? Is the business viable from a financial perspective?

During the business model design phase, we deconstruct your idea and crunch the numbers to provide definitive answers to those questions.

You will discover if your business model is feasible and if it will stand out in the market.

Problem and Demand Discovery 

Having an idea is just the start. Now, it’s about understanding if you are solving a problem that individuals and businesses actually experience and if there's real demand for your proposed solution. Will your target customers find enough value in your solution to switch from the existing alternatives?

In the problem and demand discovery cycle, you’ll engage directly with your market segment. Through targeted conversations with potential early adopters, you’ll gain invaluable insights that refine your business model and value proposition, ensuring there’s a hungry market that is eager for your solution.

MVP Design & Launch

With a feasible business model and confirmed market demand, it’s time to build. In this final phase, we guide you through developing your Minimum Viable Product (MVP)— the simplest version of your product that serves your early adopters.

In this stage, we don’t just aim for a launch; we strategize for a launch with traction. You will leverage the insights and demand validated in earlier phases and then you’ll introduce your MVP to an audience ready and eager to pay, ensuring you hit the ground running with revenue from day one.
