I’m trying to best find a way to publish the book, finding an illustrator to help design the book and find start up funds to help create the prototype and also purchase the doll that comes attached and also what kind of packaging would be needed.
Actions I’ve taken so far
I’ve done market research at different non stores, spoken with educators in the NYC area to discuss the need for the book and at retail stores to see what exists currently.
My future goals
I’d like to launch this book by August/September when the new school year begins and before Hispanic Heritage Month begins in October. After conducting some customer discovery reports I’ve realized that additional supporting documents for parents/caretakers/educators will be needed to accompany the book
My motivations to work with a mentor
I am a student of life and am looking for guidance from experienced mentors in creating tools/services and helping quantify my idea and find the true value proposition of it.
About my venture
I’ve recently begun the creation of a multimedia company that helps underrepresented communities feel heard and seen. Part of this umbrella company is a book for neurodivergent children that can be used as a tool for parents, caretakers and educators and a coping mechanism for the children.
