What is a Startup? 

A startup is a young enterprise (typically less than 5 years old) founded by one or more entrepreneurs to bring a product or service  to market  that solves a problem experienced by a group of people.

Generally , there are three stages to every start up as follows: 

Idea / Seed Stage

At this stage your enterprise is just a thought or an idea. The focus will initially be on planning issues  (e.g. writing up some type of business plan, test marketing, prototyping), followed by preparatory activities for launch (e.g. forming your company, building a team,  secure funding, etc.)

Initial Trading & Traction Stage

At this stage the enterprise is now up and running making some sales. The focus now is to entrench market acceptance of your products/services, build a strong customer base and  figure out what works and what does not - especially in terms of  sales and lead  generation. Ongoing business planning will play a major role.

Growth & Scaling Stage

At this stage revenues and customers are increasing and you more or less know the processes  driving  this success. The ‘trick’ now  is  to optimize your marketing  to iterate these processes  to increase sales at a rapid rate. Putting in place the infrastructure needed  support your growing sales (e.g. more staff) will  be vital.

 When these rapid sales eventually level off and your  business processes become routine (maybe after a couple of years) you will no longer be a startup.  You will officially be an established enterprise.

What People are Saying

Testimonials

Thank you for the thorough job in setting up my limited company. Took your advice and got the tax refund in July

“Me and the management committee want to thank you for taking time to explain the complex world of charities, social enterprises and not for

profits. Your knowledge of this sector is amazing and we will always recommend you to our partners and associates.”

 I hate finance but focusing on my targets is making things so simple for me and I am learning a lot  about my consultancy
