You had an idea, implemented it, raised funding, but now what? Whenever you launch a company the priority comes to marketing your startup. You don’t have any customers as your existence it’s not yet acknowledged by everyone. Around 90% of the startups fail to pass this hurdle and shut their operations.
You have a great innovative vision, extraordinary leadership qualities, and a good team. All these RT ingredients to establish a startup. To make it a business you have to have the drive focus and access to funds to jump-start and feed the business.
