Planning for the worst with a business start-up

Recessionary swings in the economy are an inevitable and unpredictable fact of life, similar to Gulf hurricanes and northeastern snowstorms. Just as with natural disasters, Denver business investors can protect their start-up company assets and future earnings by making plans for the next economic downturn. What works for a business in good times may quickly become a liability, bu there are some ways to prepare for a quick response.

The details new business owners shouldn't neglect

Colorado residents may choose to start businesses to experience the thrill of being their own bosses. However, there are many details involved with starting a company that some entrepreneurs may overlook, which could reduce their odds of being successful. For instance, business owners may forget to secure the licenses and permits they may be legally required to possess prior to opening their doors to customers. Individuals should be aware that they may have to pay certain fees or dues to become properly certified to run a company.

Expanding a business into international markets

There are a number of reasons why a Colorado business owner might want to expand into the international market, and one of the biggest is the incredible potential for growth. However, many business owners are intimidated at the idea of this type of expansion, and this is especially true after the uncertainty related to the passage of Brexit.

More metro-area businesses are closing than opening

Colorado entrepreneurs who are interested in starting their own businesses should be aware of the results of a report that has been released by the Economic Innovation Group. It showed that in 2014, the most recent year with available data, there were more company closures that startups in two-thirds of all metropolitan areas around the country.

Using competitive insights to succeed in business

Colorado entrepreneurs in Colorado may be able to learn a lot by watching the activities of other businesses. For example, the new 'basic economy" class that United Airlines has announced may be interesting to analyze. Whether the new budget option helps United Airlines to grow or cannibalizes the airline's higher-priced options is yet to be seen. Whatever happens, it's clear that United Airlines is taking a cue from competitors that have already started to sell cheap, no-frills tickets.

A business plan can help with more than just funding

Many Colorado entrepreneurs write business plans in order to attract potential investors for their new ventures. However, business plans are important even to companies that are being funded by their founders. They can help owners by forcing them to make a plan to achieve their business goals.

Business planning for 2017

Many entrepreneurs in Colorado are very busy during the holiday season. Ventures may be booming during the fourth quarter, and there may be a lot of holiday parties and family events to attend. Even during this hectic time, it is important for business owners to assess their goals for the new year.
