When bootstrapping a startup it is easy to get overwhelmed by thoughts of the kit you might need. It would be great to go out and buy a top of the range laptop or desktop with all the latest software pre-installed but this can be a potential waste of time and budget. Cash flow can be tight to non-existent and so the last thing you want to do is invest capital in the wrong places. So keeping costs to a minimum in the IT department can be essential when first starting out. In the post, we are going to give some essential tips on how to bootstrap your startup.
In recent years a buzzing tech community has developed throughout the eastern area of the city and beyond. It is now rated as one of the top places in the world to base your startup in terms of support and funding. The main focus of London’s startup scene, in media coverage at least, has been focused on a traffic junction which has even lead to the phrase ‘Silicone Roundabout’ being coined.
In the early stages of founding a startup there’s a whole ton of stuff that you need to think about. It can be easy to get way laid by minor concerns and you might begin to loose focus on the bigger objectives. Yes a nice looking logo is important. But when you are starting from zero and no one knows who you are, what you stand for or promise to deliver/produce it matters little.
In a world full of startups it is becoming increasingly difficult to be heard and attract attention. Nowhere is this more apparent than online where thousands of established sites sit high on any Google search regardless of the topic. So if having a startup landing page alone won’t cut the search engine mustard, blogging for your startup can often be a great place to start in turning things in your startup’s favor.
