Write down the first words that come to mind that are related to your project in the form of a list: prioritize, connect words, concepts, make links. Be spontaneous and don’t hesitate to use mindmapping and diagrams to classify your ideas.

Étape 2

Summarize your idea, your project in a few lines. Here, 3 essential questions:

  • Why? Note the values, the cause that your company will defend, etc.
  • How do you do it? The “how” refers to the means necessary to achieve your “why”, you can also define your differentiating factors here
  • What? This question answers the characteristics of your offer.

Don’t forget to discuss your idea with the people around you, they will be your first sources of criticism or validation.

Étape 3

Do a self-assessment on your strengths, weaknesses and the strength of your motivation

This is an opportunity for you to study projects similar to yours, competitors, demand and offers identical to yours in the market, potential suppliers as well as opportunities and threats in the market.
