Before looking for an Angel investor there are a number of hard hitting questions you may have to ask yourself. Do you have what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur, because if you are in doubt then this doubt will make getting an investor to part with their money all the harder.
In 2012 there has never before have there been so many small businesses and people thinking about starting new ones. Chances are that in the time it takes you to read this preface, three or four new businesses will be born somewhere in this country.
Unfortunately, statistics also indicate that more than nine out of every ten new ventures will fail.
How about you?
Does the idea of becoming your own boss interest you (or are you already in business for yourself)? What does it take to be successful? How can you tell whether a proposed venture will bring profits or losses? What are the major things to consider in managing an ongoing company? How do you get out gracefully if you eventually decide to do so?
The purpose of this website is to answer these and many other similar questions both for students and for small business principals or people considering going into business for themselves. The emphasis in content is always on the practical how to considerations involved in applying the benefits of others experience to make your own efforts pay off.
This site will hopefully test your belief in yourself and then point you in the right direction to be the new Branson!
Innovation is the specific tool of entrepreneurs, the means by which they exploit change as an opportunity for a different business or a different service. It is capable of being presented as a discipline, capable of being learned, capable of being practised.
Entrepreneurs need to search purposefully for the sources of innovation, the changes and their symptoms that indicate opportunities for successful innovation. And they need to know and to apply the principles of successful innovation.
