Launch your I.T. start-up! This is a great time to pursue entrepreneurial activities. Granted, it’s painfully brutal to leave what’s safe, secure, and comfortable. We are inclined to keep our comfortable job and small little lives chugging along. The thrill of creating something new is fulfilling. Apricot Computers set out to take advantage of the developments in cloud computing, virtual networking, and yes I’m going to say it the “Internet of Things”.
The challenges our team has faced launching Apricot Computers required a small budget. To begin with we needed a few thousand dollars. Most innovators and entrepreneurs face difficulty in knowing how to approach investors. Keep in mind, not to jump too far in the pool of ravenous venture capitalists. If you raise too much money too soon you may be giving away your pearls.
Angel investors, friends, and family can provide you a little to get the fire kindled. The beauty with I.T. is many resources are available for free. The key to running your new venture is being organized and disciplined. Many times our minds are so focused on a new technology changing the world. Without realizing that the first step should be getting that 1st customer through the door. When you start humbly and organically. You will be able to hunt for big game later.
