Top Tips for Surviving the Start-up Early Years

The statistics vary wildly from industry to industry but around 50% of start-ups will fail in the first 4 years of life, yet most of these failures are completely avoidable. In this webinar, Stuart Morris explores the most common mistakes made by founders and how to avoid them.

On 17 July Stuart Morris presented an alumni webinar on ‘Top Tips for Surviving the Start-up Years’, looking at the most common mistakes made by founders and how to avoid them.

The statistics vary wildly from industry to industry but around 50% of start-ups will fail in the first 4 years of life. Most of these failures are completely avoidable. Stuart Morris discussed how hard work and commitment will get you a long way but stressed how important it is to ensure you’re putting the effort into the right areas and in the right way.

Stuart is a successful founder of multiple companies and used a number of interesting examples from personal experience to illustrate his points. The webinar provided plenty of time for questions from participants; ranging from such topics as cash flow, team management, and marketing. The questions generated an enthusiastic conversation between participants with plans to continue the discussions in a LinkedIn group after the webinar.

You can watch a recorded version of the webinar online.
