With DT:Hub you get to the good intentions: This year will be founded successfully!
Many people start the new year with good intentions. We all think about what we want to achieve next year and where we want to go. For example, many would like to do more sports or quit smoking. But some people are thinking about starting their own business in the new year 2019 and finally realizing their idea.
However, many people willing to start a business do not know exactly where they should start and what they have to consider when starting a business.
That is why we have prepared a small checklist here, so that you can get off to a good start in 2019:
- The planning:
Before you even start with the foundation, it is important that you ask yourself the basic questions about starting a business.
With which product or service do you want to start your own business? Is it really possible to earn money with the idea? Who are the co-founders and what business form should the new company take?
- Business Plan
The business plan is a Comprehensive structured summary of your own business idea and contains detailed planning for the implementation of this idea. It consists of a written part and a financial plan. A Business plan is also an important door opener. Especially if you want to finance your business he is indispensable for an interview with the bank or an investor.
The foundation of a company is often associated with start-up financing. In most cases, founders do not have the necessary equity capital to pay for the start-up and the initial investments, so that they are dependent on external financing. Possible sources of finance are a loan from a bank, a handsome grant or the search for potential investors who would like to invest in your business model.
- Found a company & register
Now the self-employed commercial activity must be registered with the trade office (does not apply to freelancers). Tradespeople and freelancers must also apply for a tax number from the tax office.
You may also need certain permits. Please enquire at the Chamber of Industry and Commerce or the Chamber of Crafts in your area.
To protect you against possible risks it is important that your company has the most important operational insurance. This includes the liability insurance as well as property and loss of earnings insurance. At the same time, however, you should also as a founder of a new business, think of private security.
