"START SMALL, DREAM BIG, AND TAKE CONFIDENT STEPS ALONG THE WAY"
Competition is fierce and first impressions count more than ever before. Early stage companies and small businesses are the most fragile, have the least resources, and face the biggest challenges. Developing a new startup business is one of the most difficult and demanding jobs and requires far more than a just great idea or seed funding from friends and family to get started. Today's entrepreneurs need experience in at least five key business disciplines to succeed, including product development, finance, sales, marketing and operations.
There are hundreds of consultants eager and willing to provide advice, counsel and critiques on your business plan, fundraising presentation, marketing plans and more. How many of them have been in your shoes and have had to write their own business plan, build elevator pitches, develop the magical 12 slide-8 minute fundraising presentation while managing employees and developing a product? Only consultants with actual experience in startups should be your partner and guide.
Entrepreneurs and their teams need to design the initial business model and launch strategy to include both their vision ("dream big") and tactics ("start small") along with the allocation of resources to get there ("take confident steps along the way').
