Entrepreneurship has always been a way out with prospects for development, progress and professional development. In the country of Cyprus today, entrepreneurship seems to be the solution to the problem of employment and tackling unemployment. That is why there is a strong mobility and interest in starting new companies. But how will this choice be successful? How to create a sustainable business? Here is an attempt to decipher the steps to starting a viable business:
Make sure you have a business idea
You suddenly feel like a fantastic business idea has been created in your mind. Do you think that this idea is important? But what makes an idea great? But who will ensure that this new venture you are considering has not been attempted by anyone else in the past? So how do you set up a sustainable business? There are two things to keep in mind: the product or service that the idea is about must meet a need and solve a problem.
Do some Market Research
Is there a specific market you’re targeting? What are the characteristics of the market? There is competition; And if so, how big? These are vital questions you need to answer. This information is necessary to see if there really is a gap in the market for the product and service you have devised and if it really makes sense to proceed with this task. For your business to be viable, there must be a market and a gap in it to claim a part of it.
Find the Differentiation Element
Perhaps the most crucial element to consider. What are the strengths/weaknesses of your project? What are the challenges, and what are the risks? Do you have a comparative advantage over what is on the market?
Work proactively. Collaborate with experts. Get into Acceleration programs that support new businesses because if you launch a product or service that already exists at the same price, in the same way, then the market share you will get is not guaranteed. Find or invent a way to differentiate yourself. Or else, find a completely new idea.
Do Business Planning
If everything shows that your idea is not only excellent, but there is a gap in the market and a difference in your thinking, then analyze your project with the following in mind:
- Find the right team to support your project.
- Identify your market and competition in detail.
- Identify the features of your product/service.
- Who do you need to work with?
- What is the business model you will follow?
- What money do they need, and where will you get the necessary funds?
- Create a three-year mini-budget.
Even if the previous steps went very well, the idea is good, there is a gap in the market, you have found the necessary funds, and you need guidance on how to start your business formally.
