There are various kinds of startups that exist out there and you don’t always need a new idea or invention to start one. Many startups have been established in an existing industry with the same concept and same goals but have either a different business model or perception or functioning.
To begin with, the first category would be small business startups. They’re mostly happy selling their product and service over a small scale like grocery stores, salons, travel agents etc.
The second one is scalable startups, which aim to be big and provide an innovative solution to their customer base. They search for a scalable business model and look for more venture capital to grow.
Next, we have buyable startups, these mostly provide web and mobile app solutions and are eventually bought/sold to larger companies.
Lastly, we have – social startups. Their focus is to make an impact and they have a passionate team working towards that goal.
If your goal is to be part of one of these categories and establish a successful startup, you should consider pursuing a course. There are various courses available in Delhi NCR that cater to aspiring entrepreneurs who wish to set up their startups.
