In this video I answer a question from one my readers who asked: "Hello My name's Chris from England, I'm new to this forum. I am launching a new start up next month, a bicycle billboard company. I have two questions: What would it take to convince your business to adopt a new advertising medium that you hadn't used before? Would you recommend outsourcing sales for small start ups? (I am considering using an outsourcing company / freelance individuals to book appointments and recruit and manage a Field Sales team as I do not have experience in sales and would prefer to leave it to professionals) Chris"

A startup is a company designed to grow fast. Being newly founded does not in itself make a company a startup. Nor is it necessary for a startup to work on technology, or take venture funding, or have some sort of "exit." The only essential thing is growth. Everything else we associate with startups follows from growth. reference: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Startup_company Created at http://www.b2bwhiteboard.com

Startup businesses can be your ticket out of whatever financial problem you may be struggling with, but first you need to have a great business idea. Most of the time, startup businesses are rooted in technology—answering a need that was previously unmet or unrealized. They tend to play a pioneering role in an industry and start out with little or zero completion. They usually have to build their own niche markets as well. All startup businesses are born from a great idea -- one that can eventually generate money if it's combined with the best tools, resources, manpower, and strategies. And you'll get to figure out all of those factors involved as you continue reading on. The Business Plan Even if you are fortunate enough to have sufficient capital for your startup business to get running without seeking any other party's aid or approval, it's still better to flesh out your idea with a business plan. Business plans are formal outlines of every step you have to take in order to make your business generate income. It should include -- but not limited to -- the following details: • Definition of the product or service that your proposed business will offer. • Target market demographics, all of which should provide a comprehensive profile of your targeted customer. • Marketing goals and strategies, which basically refer to how you intend to sell your product or service. • Operational goals and strategies, which basically consist of how you plan to run the day-to-day operations of your proposed business. • Projected statistics, particularly how much you are likely to spend and earn in the next three years as well as your estimate ROI. • How much capital you need. Where Will You Get Your Capital? Capital is the seed money or the initial investment required for your startup business to operate. Naturally, you can dig deep in your own pockets to put up capital for your business. But if that's not possible, you can also use your business plan to shop around for possible external sources of capital. • Bank loan -- These loans come with interest charges. You have to be of good financial standing or have someone to guarantee your loan in order to borrow money from a bank. • Grants -- This may or may not require repayment though in most cases, they do not come with interest. Grants may come from government and non-government agencies. They are typically offered to individuals or companies whose proposed businesses can directly or indirectly contribute to improving the quality of human life. What about Investors? If you're willing to share some of your gains or profits, then you can also open your business to investors. Again, your business plan will prove to them whether your proposed business is worth risking their money for. Of the various types of investors you can approach, angel investors or venture capitalists tend to be most attracted to startup businesses. They have partiality for small to mid-sized startup businesses rooted in high technology and/or high growth companies with a potentially unique competitive advantage. If your own proposed startup business can be described in the same terms, then you definitely have a good chance of finding an angel investor or venture capitalist to provide you with financial backing.

So you have convinced a VC to fund your startup, but just before he writes you a check he sends you a term sheet. In this episode of eLagaan Whiteboard Friday, the eLagaan (http://elagaan.com ) team explains why having the correct term sheet is important for any company. Find out in this video what is term sheet, when are term sheets required. Sequence of events leading up to receiving the term sheet and how to deal with the term sheet once you have received it. According to Naeem Zafar , a term sheet is a non-binding contract to invest in certain terms. Find out if terms sheets are negotiable. Term sheet mainly consists of Valuation, Control, Exit economics, Founders treatment. Which in terms defines who gets the board seats, having more control in the company, protective provisions, Liquidation preferences & If the terms sheet or contract can be modifies after it has been signed. The video gives an example of how you (founder of the startup) could be selling the company for $20M and still just get $500k in return or very minimum, based on how the term sheet is formed and constructed. It talks about can the founders be terminated from their own company (remember Steve Jobs). More @Pluggd.in TV.
