After defining the idea or the concept of the startup, lots of entrepreneurs begin the design of their product (website, or physical product). But most of them wait to build a 100% operational product before test it with some potential customers on the market. For certain project as deep technical project, the time of development can exceed two years of full work, and some team wait to build the entire product before present it, and finish to understant that the product they build interests nobody.
