What is Start-up?

"Startups are different from traditional business, because they are designed to grow fast."

A startup is a young company that is just beginning to develop. Startups are usually small and initially financed and operated by a handful of founders or one individual. These companies offer a product or service that is not currently being offered elsewhere in the market, or that the founders believe is being offered in an inferior manner.

What is Startupedia?

"Most dream of castles in the sky, but only a handful build foundations beneath it."

The creative ideas and innovations are merely an incubus until they get built up. A startup is a blitzkrieg of wisdom about creating things.

Paramarsh'16, for the first time ever, with utter enthusiasm, kindles STARTUPEDIA-The Development Dialogue, with the sole aim of getting the young vision chasers out of dilemmas and giving them a golden opportunity to materialize their ideas! We are proud to provide such innovators and young aspiring entrepreneurs a platform for them to mark a milestone!

Steps for Startup

Validate
Your Idea

Validating your idea will maximize the chance of success for your startup. In this section, you will find out how to find a perfect solution for a real problem that troubles a sizable population.

Market Research

Just because you build it or sell it doesn't necessarily mean anyone will buy it. The first essential step is to research your potential market. Who needs what you are offering? Is there space for your product or service in the market or is the market saturated? Is the market national? Is it a niche? Can you define your ideal customers? These are all questions that need to be answered before you even consider starting a business.

Future Plannings

Determine what you have, what you will need and how you will go about getting it. If you plan to seek investor funding or financing, start writing a business plan and practice your pitch. Research the costs associated with your business. Know how much money you'll need and decide where it could come from.

Make a Prototype

Most of your thoughts, even the best ones, will never see the light of day sadly. You will forget them into oblivion even if you write them down. The only exceptions are those thoughts you prototype. Make them physical, program them, design them, do anything that makes them more than just thoughts. Most people will stop right here. So if you do this, you are already ahead of the imaginary curve.

Find a Mentor

Mentorship is a touchy subject. First, you should determine if having a mentor is good for you as a founder. If so, finding the right mentor can make a huge difference. Even with the combined expertise of you and your co-founder, a mentor can provide deep industry insight and wisdom to help you navigate some of the challenges that come your way.

Decide on Branding

Branding is about more than just choosing a name, it's about deciding on an identity for your idea. You want to choose something you love, but you also want to choose a name that conveys the experience of using your product and the problem that it solves.

Register your business.

Split equity. Finally, an easy step. Get a lawyer who will register your company. Give your co-founder as much equity as will make them work their hardest, while you keep as much as will make you give it your all.

Go Get yourself launched !
