I like and have successfully used the Business Model Canvas approach. You fill in all assumptions. Test the riskiest one in the simplest manner, then move on. E.g. if you're not sure you can find the right partnerships, look for that first. If you're not sure the value proposition would work, interview some people, make some mockup PowerPoint slides, and so on.
