    Grab a like-minded friend or colleague who has the skills to code up the idea.

    Break it down to it's simplest form to something that's achievable in your spare-time.

    Do the UX and designs for your buddy so he can plan the effort on his side. Make sure the flow is laid out.

    Help your buddy in anyway possible to make the MVP easier to develop. Find frameworks, bug fixes on Stack Overflow, 3rd party services etc.



    A few others have mentioned doing user research etc... but just build it. The experience will make you a better designer plus you'll have a product under your belt.

    If people love it then great, if not, then you have something under your name which will give you more credibility with investors when you make your next thing.
