Pros and Cons of Solo, Partner, and Group Business Start-ups

DMR_week62_2When you start a new business, you have many factors to consider. Perhaps the most important initial factor to ponder relates to how your start-up is structured. Will you be an independent entrepreneur? Will you have a business partner to assist you with the operations? Will you team up with a group of people to form your start-up business? There are many pros and cons to consider with each of the options.

By starting your business alone as an independent entrepreneur, you will have complete control over all business decisions. You won’t need to worry about getting partners on board with specific ideas or plans you would like to follow through for the business. However, there are benefits to having one or more business partners as well. For example, your business partners may bring significant resources to the venture. These resources may include financial resources, intelligence and experience, business connections, and more. While there are clear benefits associated with having partners, you should consider your ability to work together in a beneficial and productive way before you select a partner or even a group of partners. Think about the different resources each partner may bring to the table to ensure the partnership will be advantageous.

While there are pros and cons associated with each type of business structure for your start-up, all start-up companies may face common challenges. For example, you may need or want to conserve financial resources while creating the impression that your start-up is successful and established.

One common way smaller companies achieve this goal is through the use of Davinci meeting rooms. Davinci meeting rooms are office rooms you lease for a few days, weeks, or months as you get your start-up off the ground. You’ll have a location to meet in person, without the cost of any long-term contracts. This type of initial service may be just what you need to get your start-up going with great success.

Whether you decide to start your new company on your own or to select one or more key partners to join the venture with you, consider all aspects associated with running the business on a daily basis and establish the infrastructure necessary for success.
