Developing an ICT idea

Starting your own information and communication technology (ICT) business can be a rewarding but challenging experience. Whether you have a great idea for a new business or you are developing an idea for an existing business, proper research and planning is important before you start operating.

You will need to research your market, customers and competitors to see if you can turn your idea into a viable business or marketable product. Research may also help you find out if your idea is financially sound and if it can be protected. To provide a good foundation and assist in commercialising your idea, consider tapping into the innovative programs, grants and support available to you.

This guide will help you develop and assess the commercial viability of your idea.
