The call for new business and brave entrepreneurs has been sounded.
As the economy fights its way out of a rough spell and people everywhere strive to create a more promising financial future, many believe that the key to reaching the tipping point of prosperity is entrepreneurship. But in the digital age that we now live, entrepreneurship has taken on a whole new meaning.
The Internet has created a new, wide-open stomping ground for revolutionary new businesses that can be accessed from anywhere in the world. As more and more consumers make purchases online, businesses no longer have to rely on location to be successful.
The start-up process is much easier now than it was for previous generations. There are countless online applications and resources that make a single person capable of what were once complicated tasks for an entire team. Things like accounting, creating and filing legal documents, and website management and creation can all be organized online.
There are even ways for entrepreneurs to overcome the financial burden of starting a company. Websites like kickstarter.com allow start-ups to share their concepts on the web. When someone likes an idea, they can then choose to donate funds and follow the new company all the way from the ground up.
Instagram, the popular photo-sharing app, accomplished the ultimate start-up dream when Facebook purchased it last April for $1 Billion in cash and stocks. At the time, the company was just 2 years old and only had 13 employees!
The number of startups is only growing year after year, and the spread of new ideas will surely spark innovative solutions to many of the world’s problems.Tagged e commerce, Entrepreneurship in the Digital Age, Korab Eland, Morningstar Communications, startups
