What is a Unicorn Startup?
Can Only a Startup be a Unicorn?
What Problems are Startups Facing?
1. Real Competition
The competitive atmosphere keeps startup companies on their toes since there is no room for error. Both B2B and B2C firms are constantly subjected to intense competition. To thrive in this fiercely competitive marketplace that includes both traditional and online firms, entrepreneurs must leverage startup tactics to obtain much-needed visibility amid the clusters of ever-challenging and increasing enterprises.
2. Unrealistic Expectations
Expectations accompany success. Startups encounter difficulties when they create “unrealistic expectations” after a period of rapid success. The one thing to remember is that expectations never cease, and accomplishment is fleeting; therefore, startups must translate their true expectations and start with simple prototypes or MVPs. The key to success is sustainability which further demands ongoing efforts. To thrive in a competitive business world, entrepreneurs must have high but managed expectations while keeping in mind the available resources, the level of growth potential, and other market criteria.
3. Financial Assets
Finance accessibility is crucial for companies and poses a serious problem when raising enough money. Startups can seek money from family members, friends, loans, grants, angel investment, venture capitalists, crowdfunding, and other sources. As the company grows, the amount of funds required keeps growing. Scaling a firm also needs a timely infusion of finance. As a result, efficient financial management is vital for startup success.
4. Generating Revenue
Several businesses need more revenue generation as the company expands. Also, as operations expand, expenditures rise with lower revenues, requiring startups to focus on the funding issue and diluting the emphasis on the essentials of the company. As a result, revenue creation is important while necessitating effective control of the burn rate, which is the pace at which startups consume money in the early stages. The challenge lies not only in raising enough money but also in expanding and maintaining growth.
5. Members of the Team
Startups often begin with a team of trustworthy people with complementary skill sets. Typically, each team member has expertise in a certain area of operations. The first necessity is to put up a solid team; failing to do so can sometimes lead to the end of the startup.
6. Support of Infrastructure
Innovation, science, and (IT) technology parks, business development centers, and other support mechanisms play important roles in the life cycle of startups. The possibility of failure rises in the absence of such support systems.
7. Increasing Market Awareness
Startups sometimes fail owing to their inability to pay attention to market limits. In addition, due to the novelty of the product, the environment for a startup is typically tougher than for an established company. The issue is more challenging for a new product because the firm must create everything from the beginning.
Opportunities for Startups
Regardless of the hurdles and problems businesses face, Indian marketplaces provide many opportunities to discover solutions specific to a startup’s needs. A handful of the options considered for startup consideration are listed below.
1. The size of India’s Population
India’s population is a significant advantage to the country. Any startup will benefit significantly from this unique demographic advantage. However, various infrastructure challenges and the bottom-of-the-pyramid market would present an enormous opportunity for businesses.
2. Challenges Mean Opportunities
India is confronting several concerns, such as population growth, poverty, sewage, water management, and excessive plastic use, all of which must be addressed in novel ways. According to Kant, Silicon Valley has the fewest difficulties but the greatest number of inventions. In contrast, India has a high number of issues with a low number of solutions, which creates opportunities for businesses with creative solutions.
Entrepreneurs may reap the most rewards from the competition! A healthy competition promotes creative growth while learning unique skills. According to Kant, state competition would lead to more companies since it will foster talent and provide financial support for the startup ecosystem. In addition, a large network of investors helps firms expand in a competitive environment.
