Is Drag ‘more than an idea’? Three signs every Startup should look for.

In our last post, we talked about how we came up with the idea of Drag. But an idea doesn’t mean much. Everybody has ideas, every day. Having an idea and turning it into something real is the big gap. When we see a gap, we like to fill it.

So is Drag ‘more than an idea’?
