Start with a proof of concept
Many entrepreneurs have brilliant ideas, but most of these ideas can not be turned into profitable businesses. Scott Dylan pointed out that, unfortunately, many business leaders realize this when it’s already too late and their enterprises are not bringing in revenues as they expected. This is why he insists that any upcoming business leader should start with a proof of concept before they launch their ventures. This will let them know whether their ideas fill any real-world gap in the market and whether the gap is enormous enough to be turned into a business.
Get your finances in order
The Fresh Thinking Group said that once the entrepreneur has proven that their business idea can be profitable, they need to move on and get their finances in order. Another primary reason startups fail is that they run out of finances before their ventures can become profitable. Scott Dylan mentioned that getting your finances in order would involve projecting how long your business might go before its starts turning a profit. Once you have established this period, you should work on getting finances that can sustain longer than that as it might take the company longer than you expect to become profitable.
Scott Dylan advised that an entrepreneur should start networking as soon as they launch their business. This would allow them to access opportunities they would not have if they had not built the networks. The Fresh Thinking Group founder said that in most cases, it’s these opportunities that make the difference between a startup becoming profitable or failing.
