Proof of concept (18-24 Months)

Proof of concept (POC) is a demonstration, the purpose of which is to verify that certain concepts or theories have the potential for real-world application. POC is therefore a prototype that is designed to determine feasibility but does not represent deliverables. This stage mostly takes 18-24 months until the start-up is ready to move into the next phase.

Prototype Development, Refinement & Validation / Trials (18-24 Months)

A first functional prototype is a victory, but it is important to keep in mind that the lion share of the work is still ahead. While this Alpha prototype proves that the product will work as intended, it normally uncovers a litany of functional and validation issues. Uncovering these issues and developing a strategy to resolve them is the key to your efforts in this phase and this takes 18- 24 months.
