Why Customer Development Matters

Discover, Validate, Create, and Build & Scale.

Steve Blank revolutionized startup growth with his Customer Development process. Go beyond just product creation with the 4 phases that can transform your startup journey.
Understand your market's true desires and needs

1. Customer Discovery

Don't guess. Discover real business needs by engaging directly with potential early adopters.

Establishing hypotheses about the business model, customers, and market, then testing these hypotheses in face-to-face or direct interactions with potential customers.

Ensure that your product isn’t just great, but the right fit

2. Customer Validation

Ensure your product isn't just liked, but cherished. Find the magic product-market fit.

Validating the business model based on the feedback received from potential customers. At this stage, it's determined if there's a product-market fit.

Drive demand, adoption, and loyalty for your business

3. Customer Creation

It's one thing to build; it's another to scale. Drive genuine demand and see your user base multiply.

If a product-market fit is established, the focus shifts to driving customer adoption, creating end-user demand, and scaling the business.

Elevate from a promising startup to a formidable company

4. Company Building

It's time to grow! Build a startup that's not just functional but ready to soar.

Transitioning from a startup to a company that's ready to scale. This phase involves building organizational structures and scaling all company operations.
