Tips for Startups

1. Believe in your product

Buy into your own vision and don’t waiver. Remember why you started in the first place. You know your vision better than anyone else. If you lose sight of it, the world will too.

2. Produce something useful

Build the best product or service you can, and make sure it has long-term value.  If you get into business solely to make money, you won’t. If you try to make a real difference, you’ll find true success.

3. Invest in what’s going to grow your business

Identify exactly what you need to grow your company. Is it technology, engineering, infrastructure? Know your priorities, do your research, start small, and think big. Hire the right people for the right reasons.

4. Think globally

Ensure your product or service is world-class and can compete with anyone, anywhere. To be successful in different markets your company needs to understand local geography and culture.

5. Have a Sense of Urgency

These are solid starting points for evolving any start-up into a successful business. However, the road to success isn’t easy and entrepreneurs need both financial support and mentorship.  

6. Don’t Quit

Don’t quit, and try not to get discouraged, and never hold back. On this business journey you will fall, but always try to fall forward. Learn from the fall and make progress.  Don’t give up!


“Don’t quit, and try not to get discouraged, and never hold back.”
