Is This the Time to Start a New Business?
For some, starting a business during such chaotic times may seem completely counterintuitive, not to mention crazy. For others, it’s prime time to implement a sound strategy and capitalize on the opportunity. In addition, you have those scratching their head and wondering, “why on Earth would someone become an entrepreneur in a pandemic?!” we have some points that will make you think otherwise.
Necessity, the Mother of Invention or Action!
In addition, people are seeing fresh opportunities as a result of increased time at home. Without commuting to work or traveling to school, more people are taking up side hustles that might evolve into a new company. Interestingly, 39% of entrepreneurs start a business to pursue a passion. So, those folks that have taken up bread baking during the pandemic and found it to be their passion might establish a full-blown bread baking company if well-thought-out.
Along with necessity and opportunity, new community needs have developed. Small businesses need to adapt quickly to online eCommerce. Rapid testing solutions need to be created. Smart healthcare technology needs to be advanced. In other words, these are just a handful of examples of the change in social needs due to the pandemic.
