Episode 49: Beginner’s Guide to Startups Part 1, the Basics with Ant Davies

Ever wondered if you should start a company?  New to all the lingo?  Wondering why startups are so hot right now?  This series is for you!

Several-time startup founder and economist Antony Davies joins me to lay out the basics of starting a company in part one of this four-part series.

Ant and I discuss what counts as a “startup”, who should think about launching one, what documents and data need to be worked out, and how to think through your market, revenue model, and plans for growth.

Here’s a slide presentation that contains visuals for much of what we discuss.
