Tech Start-Ups are Showing Small Businesses New Models to Work and Grow

New York, NY– Whether they succeed or flounder, start-ups and their ways are teaching conventional business wisdom new tricks of trade. The mom-and-pop store has braved and survived the assault of technology and innovation, and small businesses are today more savvy than they were earlier.

Only a third of new businesses in the US survive for over fifteen years, most not making past the first few. The rules of the game however are now more challenging than ever, as the start-up culture begins to catch up.

At the basic level, small businesses are now learning the value of clarifying their business model. This means knowing the ‘whys and for whom’, and fixing the goals and the means to reach them. They must also put more value on what others think of their business idea. Market research and analysis too occupies the top slot of activities that must be done before proceeding any further. It does not end here, and avoidable risks are taken care of by testing the business model with a small target audience.

“The start-up culture is quite organized and has got the basics in place. Their lessons can show small businesses  how to get out of the rut and get smarter and better,” said Strahan McNeil.
