  9. 9. Startup/jaunuzņēmums nav parastais MVU • • • • Parasti nav ienākumu kamēr izstrādā produktu Meklē biznesa modeli (“product-market fit”) Ātra izaugsme vai ātra nāve Nav aktīvu kurus var izmantot par nodrošinājumu • Vienīgie finansējuma avoti ir akciju kapitāls vai neapmaksātais darba spēks
  10. 10. Kāpēc šie uzņēmumi ir īpaši? • Spēlē globālā tirgū no pirmās dienas – Ir globlālais izaugsmes potenciāls – Veiksmīgie būs starptautiski uzņēmumi ar mātes uzņēmumu Londonā, Ņujorkā vai San Fransisko • Veido jaunu intelektuālo īpašumu un vērtību • Salīdzinoši liela investīciju ieplūde uz maz darbinieku skaitu • Nes Latvijas vārdu pasaulē
  11. 11. Ko valsts var darīt lai atbalstītu? • Nesajaukt uz inovācijam balstīto uzņēmumu atbalstu ar “dzīvesstila” uzņēmumu atbalstu • Finansiālo atbalstu vajag pareizā formā: investīciju vairošana nevis grantu programas un trešo pušu pakalpojumu finansēšana – LGA mazo aizdevumu programa laba – Eņģeļu un riska kapitāla ko-investīciju veicināšana – Tehnoloģiju inkubātors Rīgā, kur cilvēkresursi nevis telpas ir galvenais pienesums • Padarīt dzīvi maziem uzņēmumiem vieglāku!
