Converting Business Idea to Successful Enterprise

Any kind of business independently on a market niche, type of sold product or service, and applied development strategy starts from nonmaterial source - a Business Idea. A catalyst for such business idea realization is an understanding that its implementation may change radically the life of a person, make it more saturated both emotionally, and materially. However, it happens quite often when a business idea may die out in its embryonic stage. Its author may even fail to understand whether it is good or not, as its investment attractiveness has not been studied, the market has not been analyzed, not to mention the drawing up of a business plan and execution of quantitative and qualitative market researches.
