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.
