Actually, having an early perception of how one’s business idea would fair on in the market is important to strategically make changes before the intended scaling into the larger market takes place. This, in turn, saves money by cutting down aspects of the proposed business idea that shouldn’t have been there in the first place.

But again, whom do you give your proposed business idea to test and give you honest feedback before launching and scaling the same into the market?  Getting an answer to this question is a hard task for many entrepreneurs because of cost implications basing the fact that some entrepreneurs might still be at start-up level and also some entrepreneurs are not sure if the members of the public that will test their proposed business ideas do indeed qualify to give competent feedback.
