Startup ideas come from luck or spontaneity, insider knowledge of an industry, and research.
Take some time and don’t run with the first idea you have.
It can be a big benefit if you are customer zero for your product.
Tap into your network to gauge if multiple people have the same problem.
Troll customer forums of large companies to find where people are having problems.
Are you building a feature, a product, or a business?
Don’t go into a space that you find boring.
