Simeon’s Answer

Usually, business research on market data is needed to know if a business plan has viability. You have to establish that there is a market for a product, either by showing a small group of buyers that are already interested in the product, establishing that there is a strong demand for similar products, or through some other means. It's important to have experienced advisors guiding you down the path as well.

Michelle’s Answer

To evaluate if you're investing in a genuinely good product:
- Think about the TAM (Total Addressable Market)
- Test the product in market - get input from end users / clients
- Evaluate whether the product solves for real pain points
- Define a strong monetization strategy for the product
- Find good partners to help with your product/business decisions
- Determine your "moat" - what differentiates your product (Unique Selling Proposition - USP) / prevents other competitors from creating the same thing?

• First understand your problem statement. What problem are you trying to solve and for who (who is your customer)?
• Consider the addressable market. What group or segments would are you going to target first?
• Compare the product against its competitors. You can use free websites like https://corp.owler.com/ or https://www.crunchbase.com/
• Investors will look at founders and management team's experience
