Start a new business

As start-up businesses are usually prone to a high degree of financial uncertainty and risk, it is important to be aware of the challenges which may be faced in the high pressured start-up environment and respond quickly to any developments. Here are some stages that need to be managed carefully:

Business plan: Sales forecasts should be prudent, cashflow projections should be accurate, and allow for the unexpected.

Funding options: Consider alternative sources of funding especially if founding directors want to retain high levels of ownership and require quick decisions including the 3Fs, ‘peer to peer’ lending, ‘crowd funding’ and business angels.
