Steps for Successful Startups

Step 1:  Evaluate Your Business Idea

Take the time to find out if your idea is viable. Who will buy your product or service? What’s happening in your industry?

Step 2:  Plan Your Business

Good business planning keeps you focused, and can be the difference between failure and success.

Step 3:  Register and License Your Business

You’ll need to go through several steps to make sure your business can operate legally.

Step 4: Fund Your Business

Now that you’ve completed your business plan and have a good sense of what your new venture will cost, you’ll want to do your research and consider carefully how you finance your project.

Step 5: Locate Your Business

Is working out of your home or garage the legal and right thing for you? Is a co-working space a viable option? Do I need a brick and mortar facility? Visit the Resource Navigator for resource partners who can help you decide.
