Within the world of innovation-based economic development one of the primary questions any entrepreneur needs to address is attached to her “great idea.” It’s often not about the level of greatness or the amount of innovation or the potential impact on a given market or existing customers. The real issue is attached to the balance between the greatest idea in the world and the greatest idea that she and her team are capable of executing. Strategic partners, value propositions, customer engagement, channels, resources, key activities, etc. – the business model – are all important variables that require diligent thought and attention. There are also additional considerations around timing, specific skills and a whole host of factors that ultimately determine the best path for success.
