In an era when the world's largest companies began life as start-ups in garages, entrepreneurship has never been more attractive. Research shows that 71 per cent of all employees in the USA want to quit their jobs and start their own companies1.
Only a few can succeed, however... To succeed, managers need to know whether they have the personal qualities to succeed as an entrepreneur and to make the right decisions in the crucial early steps, to plan and build their business.
This white paper draws on the insights of business experts to address the following topics and help managers decide whether they can reach even greater heights as start-up founders:
1. Opportunity and Risk
2. Skills: Have you got what it takes?
3. Building your business
4. Getting the support you need
