How Many Features do You Need for an MVP launch?

Today, we’re talking about: how many features you need to launch an MVP?

Ideally — we start with zero. We launch the product manually with almost zero engineering. You’re essentially an individual concierge service for your first alpha testers.

If your product means that you do have to build something for alpha testers, don’t build more than 1 feature. For example, don’t build login, signup or settings pages for your MVP — just the core feature.

Taking this approach allows you to iterate rapidly and ensures you’re building something people actually want.
