Step 1: Ideate

In Step 1, Cobalt guides you through how to plan and develop your idea, build a business model, create financial projections, and get expert insights and feedback on your brilliant idea. In Step 1, you can sketch your idea, research the market, find out what’s required to set up your business, and forecast performance. This allows you to understand every aspect of your idea so nothing comes back to bite you later. With Cobalt, you won’t miss any important details and your idea gets better and better with our simple, step-by-step guide.

Step 2: Validate

Business model – check! Financial projections – done! Expert insights – complete! Now it’s time to bring your idea to life with a Digital Prototype. A Digital Prototype is a visualization of your idea. More than just a pretty face, your Digital Prototyping goes beyond design to help you understand engineering, manufacturing, and even marketing of your idea. You will be able to virtually explore your idea before it’s completed, helping you determine how to make your idea a success. Once you have a Digital Prototype, you need to show it to real customers using Cobalt’s proprietary validation tools, where you can get feedback and insights from real customers.
