Risks and uncertainty prevail on the side of the barrier. Two factors are essential in the collection of obstacles to enterprise: the need to find the right business idea and the need to find compatible capabilities inside one or several cofounders.

The development of a product-service network analyses and identifies the possible areas of opportunities so that the most significant gaps can be addressed which the process participants are analyzing in turn.
