I would try to talk to potential users before even having an MVP.

You can create a landing page and see if it converts.

But even before that. Just call potential users that might use your product and that have the problem you are trying to solve.

Chat with them regarding the problem they have. Don't try to sell your solution. Just try to understand the problem.

Understanding the problem well is already 50% of job done.
