By Tigran Ghalumyan
Starting a new small business is not a small decision. It requires effort and time, strategic planning, and steel nerves. Stress is, of course, inevitable, as is this terrible feeling of uncertainty. Entrepreneurship has always been a way out with prospects for development, progress, and professional development. Today in many countries, entrepreneurship is seen as a solution to the problem of employment and tackling unemployment. That is why there are strong mobility and interest in starting new startup companies.
Introduction: What Is A Startup?
Start-Up is a temporary organization formed for the purpose of rapid growth, using an iterative and scalable business model. Otherwise, the start-up business is a company designed to grow fast. A common feature of the two definitions is the growth rate of the company. If we fill in the term innovative then, we end up with the basic features of a Start-Up. This type of business, although already several decades old, has recently come to the fore again due to the recent international crisis, and in fact, for most markets is undergoing re-research and development.
As reported by the National Federation of Independent Business study made in 2019, 30% of American small businesses think that it is a good time now to expand. The NFIB’s May 2019 survey shows that the confidence in startups and small businesses has reached record-high levels. Surveyed businesses expect to expand operations, boost capital spending, and increase sales.
