FINANCIAL GROWTH: THE NEXT STEPS FOR YOUR BUSINESS

August 3rd, 2018.



When you’re looking at financial growth for your company, it’s a good idea to pay attention to people who have been where you are before.


Among the many pieces of sage advice passed on by Steve Jobs, one should always stick in the mind for any entrepreneur: ‘Start small, think big.’

Starting small is hard enough. Turning the business idea jotted down on the back of a napkin into something tangible doesn’t happen overnight. But with the right ambition, drive and understanding, it’s possible to turn an idea into an iPhone.

Of course, not every SME will turn into Apple. Not every SME wants to. But for those looking to grow, there are more opportunities than ever to do so.

Uncertainty can lead to opportunity
Does that all sound a bit too optimistic? Certainly, although statistics suggest that the UK start-up scene is thriving – at times in the past few years we’ve been seeing more than 500 start-ups launch every day in London – the number of businesses that go on to successfully scale is far lower than in other countries.

And of course, it seems you can’t speak about growth or progress right now without throwing in great big caveats involving the phrases ‘Brexit’, ‘insecurity’ and ‘wait and see’.
