Ever wondered if there was a road map for startups to become successful? Here’s how you can learn it through an Infographic.
Startups are born not only because of a novel idea, but also because of dissatisfaction.
Many big brands of today were startups of yesterday; Google, Facebook, Amazon…the list is endless.
They may be different technologies, different products, different geographical set-up altogether, but they all had something in common—a burning desire amalgamated with a systematic approach to succeed.
There was no magic wand, no fairytales or godfather to take them through the hurdles. Each one of them strived hard to string together a novel idea/dissatisfaction, a good sense of timing, sharper social skills, flexibility, follow-through, self-discipline and smart funding to bring out a successful startup.
A deeper look will reveal that each successful startup had a systematic path that included formation, growth and taking their business from one level to the next higher level.
Paul Graham, the famous programmer and venture capitalist, in his famous essay, How to Start a Startup, provides an explicit roadmap for a startup to become successful.
Funders and Founders have made the reading all the more pleasurable through an infographic, which explains the various steps of startups from idea generation through to initial public offering.
