The success story of startups often lags behind the people


Humanity has never been short of brilliant ideas. In every corner of the world (or even Estonia) you can find countless incredibly fast and revolutionary ideas, which are not just science fiction dreams or impossible visions of the future, but completely feasible thoughts to increase your own and others' well-being. So what is holding us back from living in a happy future today, rather than in the never-ending tomorrow?

As a rule, the author of the idea claims that it is about money. If only it were 10 or 50 or 500 thousand, then it would do and show what a right business idea looks like and how wealth flows in through the door and window! That's usually where the idea stays.

Some, however, take a step further and buy a lotto or set themselves the goal of learning the finer details of online kihlveod in order to raise the initial capital from there with easy effort. It is true that some of them actually win a larger amount, but it is quickly spent to improve their lives and those of their loved ones, and if the winner even happened to have a worthwhile idea, it is put on hold, because a good life requires living. I have not heard that anyone has developed a larger type of business with the fortune that fell into his lap.


What's holding us back?


If you continue to discuss in this way and count all business incubators and accelerators, you cannot agree that a good idea cannot become a reality only because of a lack of money. No one can hide behind the difficulties of writing financing applications either, because in addition to professional business advisors, it is also possible to put together a completely proper, comprehensible and verifiable business plan with freely available tools. It is also unlikely that the past that inhibits our entrepreneurship has still not disappeared with more than 30 years of freedom.

Maybe it's still a matter of courage and laziness? Precisely in the key of having the courage to leave laziness behind and start working hard. Even in Estonia, you don't have to do too much to be away more or less comfortably. The question may really arise that if so many start-up companies never get anywhere, then it is very likely that my business will also run into the sand.

Maybe the market doesn't want my product or service? Maybe getting raw materials will be more expensive than expected? Maybe they won't be allowed to sell such things after three years? These and hundreds of others like them are actually completely intelligent questions and no one can give them a definite answer. The only way is to take action, to do, and only then can clarity come.

Such ignorance, however, does not inspire, but slows down and forces it to stand still. Instead of entrepreneurially starting from scratch to realize your dream, it is postponed until tomorrow, autumn or next year. One might ask what is more tragic? Is it that the person eventually gets tired and gives up on their good idea or that the idea itself is lost. However, these things often tend to go hand in hand.

Many brazenly shout that: "Rabbits don't drink champagne!", but it turns out that this figurative rabbit doesn't really care about champagne or the accompanying intoxication. Quietly picks a blade of grass and sometimes dreams of a bigger loop or a distant village. But the village (or, in the case of business, the country) dreams of enterprising people to support and with whom to move the economy forward. Sometimes the parties rarely meet, even more rarely a success story is born. That's why it's so important to remember that no good initiative or undertaking can work without people who contribute and really make an effort.
