Quote from National Instrument: "There is a path to success. If you can demonstrate or better yet, prototype into the customer's hands and get real feedback on the value of your innovation, the probability of business success greatly increases. Recognize that ideas are cheap. Given the connected, internet-savvy world in which we live, ideas have become cheap and they will probably become cheaper with time. The expense lies in testing and verifying what has economic value. A great prototype is often the best way to start a dialogue with potential customers and test your idea's value."
