Starting your entrepreneurial journey is an exciting time. As exciting as it is, the path to business ownership can feel overwhelming. The daunting tasks required to take your idea from concept to launch can hinder your forward motion. Luckily, you don’t have to walk this journey alone. Here at KITE, we provide tools and highlight local resources to help turn your ideas into a successful business.
Developing business ideas can be exciting. But, it is also a lot of work, which can be equally rewarding and challenging. As you look for a starting point, ask yourself, “What is my motivation behind wanting to become an entrepreneur?”
Once you know why you want to start a business and are ready to put in the work, explore different business ideas before landing on the one you want to pursue. Ask yourself, “Does this idea or venture help me achieve my business goals?” Join a workshop or meet with an advisor who can help you troubleshoot your ideas.
