Developing an idea and launching a business is hard work. It takes a lot of time and effort – often unpaid in the development stages – into fleshing out the concept, sourcing materials or suppliers, perhaps trialing prototypes, testing the market, refining the offer, building a brand and finally, hopefully, making a living out of it.
