I wanted to share a book I find valuable for both startups and entrepreneurs called “Startup From The Ground Up”.
Author Cynthia Kocialski brings reconnaissance from big business to new startups. Our agency exactly supports that mission: “putting wings on your dreams”. We’re honored to share this symbiotic purpose and Cynthia’s wisdom in helping companies launch visions into reality.
To honor Cynthia stopping for stopping by and visiting our blog on her book tour (Sept. 5, 2011) we’re featuring Cynthia’s article “Why Big Customers Resist Doing Business with Start-Ups” in hopes it shaves years off a startups growth cycle (and frustration level).
There are many people who dream of being an entrepreneur, but most don’t know how to realize their dream. New businesses don’t fail because companies are unable to build a product or offer a service; they fail because the business factors needed to bring that product into the market are either neglected or ignored.
“Startup from the Ground Up” provides practical advice for how to get an entrepreneur gets moving down the right path and thinking in the right direction with practical tips, strategies, techniques and stories on how to transform an idea into a company. It shows the entrepreneur which business factors should be given their focus and attention in the beginning years of the new business.
