Startup Series – II – Building Your Company

I. INTRODUCTION TO BUILDING COMPANY FOR STARTUPS In the first article of our startup series, we have mentioned crowdfunding, which is a contemporary and interesting topic, and dwelled on the conditions of using crowdfunding as an alternative financing source in your company. For the second article of our series, we want to turn our course back a little bit, to the period when your ideas and your startup are slowly maturing. One of the most important questions in mind during the initial period when there is no legal entity yet when there is just you and perhaps your partner, your opinion and effort are undoubtedly “Will we establish a company?”

Why now is the time for a first-class outsourced switchboard

Especially with additional measures in place to receive staff and visitors. Here is how outsourcing your switchboard can greatly improve your front of house team. And ultimately, your firm’s operations.

Employers should prepare for long-term changes to the world of work

There are of course many negatives arising from the crisis presented by COVID-19. However, there could be real benefits for businesses and their staff if we take some of the opportunities that have been presented and do not just look to revert to the old ways of doing things.
