17. One way ticket to hell
July 22, 2014, HOURS 13:52
Tim has gone.
The Great C has won: it took him.
Northern Ireland, one-way ticket. A well-paid job and the opportunity to grow professionally.
An opportunity that you can’t waste. In Italy. In 2014.
We have lost our all-rounder. Victory, our startup, has lost an important part of its team, that, like many other young italian people, was forced to leave the country.
We continue planning, and today we began to draw up the business plan.
I read percentages: on average only 27% of the entrepreneurs of small and medium-sized enterprises have created a business plan (http://www.pinterest.com/pin/61220876159478523/).
Perhaps it’s caused by their lack of entrepreneurial culture, or simply luckily they were so good that they don’t need to do it.
In fact, the motivations to create a Business Plan are different:
1 – Put in writing business ideas: this allows the entrepreneur to “grow”, identifying the problem (if supported by the right consultants), make certain remedial actions, and set the appropriate strategies;
2 – Look for Investors;
3 – Participate in Startup Competition / Calls for Startup (and here comes into play the Pitch).
Consequently, the shape of a Business Plan should depend on the goal: it must be communicatively effective according to the needs. Last but not least, the structure of the Business Plan: about this point I will talk about it in another post, now I have to leave the blog. I have a skype-call with a multinational company based in Germany.
Yes, it is, The Great C is trying to take me too, and bring me out of Italy.
Will it make it?
