These days it's possible to launch a tech startup with less money than ever before—if you know how to do it right.
Jason Baptiste knows firsthand that you don't need a trust fund or an MBA to be a successful entrepreneur; his most recent venture, OnSwipe, earned its first $1 million in seed funding after just five months.
The Ultralight Startup shows how to build an astoundingly successful tech startup with nothing but a good idea, a little money, and a lot of passion. Baptiste walks would-be tech moguls through every stage of the process, from testing a concept to acquiring customers to determining the best pricing model.
Among his strategies:
Build the product you wish you had: Chances are if you wish a product existed, someone else will be willing to pay for it.
You can't go it alone: Even if you don't have any money, you can still find great people to help you bring your product to market.
Perfection will kill you: It's more important to gain feedback quickly on an early version of your product than to tweak it to death.
