A startup is a business in its earliest stages of development. It typically introduces a new service or product into the market without any assurance that the company will be successful. Therefore, it is imperative that the founder(s) of the startup does as much early research as possible to plan for success. They need to ascertain the costs of starting their new business and how they will raise the capital. They must also identify their audience, know the spending habits of those customers, and figure out the most efficient and successful way to market to them. They should also have an idea of what it will cost to gain and retain a new customer and the approximate times that consumer can be expected to purchase that product or service in their lifetime. Startups often being with the founder’s dreams and passion, but there is a lot of legwork and research that needs to be completed for a startup to be successful and profitable.
