This is done to test whether these tools can add value for entrepreneurs when planning the launch of new business venture. The combination of the chosen methods of various disciplines, allowed the project to conclude that industry in question would be attractive in the case of the startup. Furthermore, throughout the project, it became evident that the use of the chosen business tools could aid the entrepreneurs to an extent. The project management discipline proved useful in general for planning startup phase of the hypothetical business.
