To Start-up or not?

A Start-up is a new business that has just begun. Starting a new business is difficult and Start-ups are very vulnerable trying to compete with more established companies in the Business world.

New businesses are often started in a bedroom or home office. Mark Zuckerberg created Facebook from his Harvard dormitory. Steve Jobs started Apple in his father’s garage.

It is difficult for a new business to get funding. Some use a Crowd-funding platform like Kickstarter, where many people invest or donate a small amount of money.

50% of new businesses will fail in the first five years. 25% will fail within the first year. The number one reason is that they offer a product or service that people don’t want. Other reasons for failure include financial fraud and a lack of managerial experience.

But what about the ones who succeed? Uber started in 2009 and today has an estimated value of $62.5 billion.
