Инновационный Прорыв 2013 - Разные типы бизнесов или почему не Startup

  1. 1. Start-up or not Startup? What is the difference between freelance, self-employment, business, and startup? http://HappyFarm.com.ua
  2. 2. What's the difference? Freelancer is an independent contractor who is not committed to the particular employer long term. Algorithm: find contract, do some work, get paid, repeat. Self-employer is a person who works for himself, alone or as a member of some team. The business model is simple and eats all the person's time. Examples: workshop, barber salon, kiosk, web-design studio :) Business is an organization that trades goods or services to consumers to make money. Lots of people do lots of work, so a businessman has free time to control more than one business at the same time. Startup is a company or temporary organization designed to look for a repeatable and scalable business model ©. The main "product" of startup is the company itself, so the company has to be "sold" at the end of the start-up phase. Exit strategy examples: acquisition by http://HappyFarm.com.ua bigger company,

But you share all risks and don't have to return the real money :) Note: If you want to play investments game your company http://HappyFarm.com.ua has to be "sold" at the end!
  5. 5. Investors. Who are they? 3F investors - friends, family, and fools. They give money for the idea or into the team (seed investments). Angel investors give money to find and develop scalable business model ($50-300K for 10-30%). Venture capital funds give money to scale successful and profitable business ($1m+ for 20-40%). Note: There are lots of people with money, but not all of them can be investors, don't play the game without rules! http://HappyFarm.com.ua
