Start-ups & new venture creation
As you have probably seen, starting a new business requires a certain personality type. It requires being a genuine entrepreneur; a leader. By becoming a leader you take on many risks, and one of them is making decisions about your financial independence, personal and family situation, the investment of many years of effort and very hard work. You might become financially independent or you could lose part – if not all – of your investment and assets. Therefore, there are many implications and elements to be considered.
Most small businesses fail because their owners were not prepared.

Different than a business plan, a marketing plan is absolutely necessary for marketing activities. It contains market research: opportunities, sizing, growth and trends.
