Seed phase

Start-up phase of a company in which the business plan is developed and implemented

The seed phase is the initial phase in the life of a new company. It involves coming up with a business concept, developing an approach, and creating the first prototypes. In this phase, start-up companies usually have large capital requirements because they have not yet begun to generate sales.
