This book is for all those who have dreamed of being an entrepreneur and are now thinking of the next step in founding a start-up and getting to work. Through this book, I am trying to prepare you as far as possible for all the unknown challenges you may face in by providing you with various frameworks to understand your business better and make better decisions for the future. This is exactly how successful start-ups operate - they encounter big challenges, make calculated guesses and keep moving. Here, I try to present a holistic view of running start-ups. Essential topics such as financial planning, investment and capital raising, business and market strategy, finding and pricing resources, even for start-ups having a small team size of 5 to 6 employees, are all discussed. All of them are treated from various types of start-up - because different ventures can have very different needs. Key points where they differ from more established businesses, which you may have already seen, are highlighted for your attention. If you invest a little of your time in reading this book, rest assured you are going to save lots of time while running your start-up by avoiding unwanted hassles.
