SMALL BUSINESS OR STARTUP?
You don’t have to be a unicorn from day 1!
Dream big, but start small.
Startups and unicorns all start with a humble beginning.
Define your own terms of success. This is after all, the liberation and freedom you seek when you start your own.
No matter which path you choose, all new businesses benefit from being effective – doing the right things first.
Some brief nuances that differentiate the two.
- Span across all categories
- Service oriented and relies on man hours
- Solo is preferred
- Own fundings
- 100% ownership is preferred
- Majority tech-driven
- Look to automate as much
- Co-founder or founding team is preferred
- Set out to seek external fundings and exits
- Willing to give up selective equity and control
- Runs on-going experiments to learn and build new features
