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.

And ultimately, your firm’s operations.
