Things to keep in mind as an early-stage startup

 

Nothing beats working for yourself. Even when you love your job and think that it’s rewarding, the satisfaction you get when you are your own boss is a completely different feeling. In the process of building up a new company, many founders ignore some basic requirements of an early-stage startup. This happens mainly because of either lack of experience or a single-minded focus on one product. The founders often tend to ignore some basic hygiene and operational factors which should be put in place from the beginning to ensure smooth scaling and a smooth fund-raising process.

While thinking of your own startup ideas, the first thought that crosses our mind is probably, “What should I sell?” or, “Which market segment has the most money?” or even, “How do I start with my current skill set?”. To ideate and channelize all these thoughts, there should be one fixed idea. Think of one unique idea, and do proper research for it.
