Create a community before launching

4 reasons to create a community in your industry before launching your startup:

  1. You will get to know your customers and what they want.
  2. You will make connections that can give you input, feedback and help you get to where you want to go faster.
  3. You will be building a reputation for yourself.
  4. You will have created a ground swell of support that you can leverage when you launch.
