If you have the right people (the “who“) and you’re actively listening to your
pre-community (e.g. customer interviews) you can quickly become

Does this mean that we’re “locked in” on what we’re actually building as a startup and team? No way! We’ve got months of work to do before we’ll even know if we’re on the right track!
But, if you stay close to your customers and community, then, you’ll know what’s really going. Community before everything.
