Financial Tips for Colombian Entrepreneurs to Kick Start their Startups

-

Over the past few years, Colombia has seen rapid growth in its startup scene. Rappi, a delivery service company that is conquering Latin America is its biggest example. The government and public sector are showing a huge interest in boosting entrepreneurship in Colombia, so more and more startups are seeing the dawn every day, while others planning to emerge. Overall, the scene looks great, but what isn’t so great is that very few manage to turn into Rappi due to many reasons – financial constraint is one of them.

The idea of starting your company is great, but managing finance for this is not. Who doesn’t like to kick off their 10 hours job, shed off the burden of pleasing your boss and irritation of struggling to cope up with the never-ending deadlines? But getting the courage to dive into unexpected is hard, and diving even harder. The market is competitive, hurdles are countless, and administrative tasks never end! On top of that building a financial infrastructure that can support the shaky beginning of a startup can be daunting. But you have to do it! Otherwise, your startup and dream of success would collapse mid-way. You can’t hit the jackpot in the first go. You have to feed your startup first before it starts feeding you.

So, here are given tips to build a financial infrastructure to start a startup that doesn’t collapse mid-way:

Start Saving Money from the Beginning:

One of the biggest financial mistakes entrepreneurs make is they wait for the idea to spring into life before managing finances. And that’s where issues start arising! You should start saving money the moment the idea of kick-starting a startup lands your mind. You need a lot of money to start a business, saving earlier is the best idea to refrain from getting into financial trouble once you get in the market.

Look for a Reliable Investor:



The other way to manage finance for your startup is to simply lookout for a reliable investor. You can ask a bank for a loan, or seek out people who are willing to support a startup (angels for that matter!). You can also pitch your idea to a huge international firm. If you are lucky enough and they like your idea, they might get ready to support you. You can ask them to send money to Colombia online, and without much hassle, you will get the desired financial aid for a secure starting.

Budget Wisely:

The art of preventing your business from sinking lies in budgeting. You should know where you need to spend money, and where cutting off will not harm the flow of the process. Like, you can’t go all out hiring many people just because you want to start big. Remember that hiring many employees means you also have to manage their salaries as well, which is hard to do in the beginning. So, budget wisely, plan out things and refrain from splurging on things that aren’t essential.

See? Managing finance for a startup is difficult, but not impossible. Smart planning and ideas can help you clear this hurdle!
