Popular Resources for Startups on Twitter & The Web

Jim Gilbert
July 10, 2018

Entrepreneurs creating a new startup face hard work, tough decisions and constant change on a daily basis. In addition to designing, developing and proving the value of their rapidly evolving product or service, those leading and working at startups must deal with wide range of important needs and issues as quickly, effectively and as cost efficiently as they can. In the past, obtaining information, advisory services and other resources for startups typically involved non-trivial expense and much delay. Cost and timely access to information and guidance are two major issues for startups – primarily because startups often lack the financial wherewithal, processes, in-house expertise and management maturity often associated with established corporate entities.

Some categories of valuable resources for startups and their entrepreneurial founders include:

  • Strategic Planning Considerations and Business Model Definition
  • Funding and Financial Planning Options
  • Administrative and Legal Aspects including Protection of Intellectual Property
  • Product Management and Product Marketing-related Programs
  • Assembling and Staffing Management, Development and Operational Teams
  • Building, Maintaining and Scaling Development, Testing and Operational Infrastructures
  • And a whole host of other matters

Easily Available Resources for Startups Unheard of Twenty Years Ago

Thankfully, today’s startup entrepreneurs have a resource that others did not have as recently as 20 years ago: a thriving source of content, advisory connections and pay-as-you-go business services. And the ability to leverage cost-effective external development and support resources like those offered by AAJ Technologies. Indeed, the combination of readily available information and reasonably priced external resources has changed the way startups operate in today’s rapidly evolving business environment.
