?Why do people hesitate to launch a start-up


In this paper, we are going to answer this question: why don’t people launch their own start-up? Almost whoever entered start-ups, preferred it to a regular job and the wealth of them became rich. So, why don’t other people like to do this? Most of the people don’t know what they want and it’s normal! If you are a programmer and you hesitate to start your own start-up, be aware there are so many other people out there who have the same feeling as you. Google founders were vacillating, even founders of yahoo were the same. We may say successful start-ups have been launched by people who were not sure. Generally, there are some reasons for this feeling which some are absurd and some are reasonable. We are going to go through the reasons. To overcome the uncertainty, we should analyze them.

Being too young

Most of the people believe that they are too young to launch a start-up, of course, some are really young. This is based on the global average age of start-up founders which is 27. So, a third of them are so young. There are some exceptions, Sam Altman, who started his start-up when he was only 19 and he became successful. There is a reason why we call people “adults” when they pass a significant limit. Usually, this limit is 21.

For realizing whether a person has become an adult or not, there are some tests. Another way to consider someone as an adult is their reaction when they face a challenge. A childish behavior toward a challenge is wanting to be acknowledged. Although there are adults who act like a child!

 Being unexperienced

 Formerly, we believed you must at least work in a company and then start your own start-up, but there are successful cases who have launched their start-up without any experience of working in a company. Kiko is a good example of this one. Its founders launched it without any experience but they faced lots of problems. In fact, all the challenges and obstacles make you experienced. Maybe if Kiko’s founders have decided to work in companies like Google or Microsoft, they would still be a junior programmer.

 We advise you to start your start-up, right after you graduated from college. Your failures make you achieve your goals sooner than working in a regular company.

Not being determined enough

You may hear that you should be so determined to start your start-up but you shouldn’t underestimate yourself. Some founders became more determined when they ran their start-ups. How can we say you are determined enough? Maybe the more you are driven to your work, the more determined you are.

Not being smart enough

Running a start-up doesn’t need that much intelligence. In some cases, you must be good at math but running other types of companies requires your effort. If it’s about selling the products, your effort comes first.

Not having enough information about business

This one is one of the factors which is not important at all. To run a start-up, you don’t have to be a business expert but your focus on product is the key point. You have to realize what people need and then produce it. If you pass this level successfully, then you have to find a way to make money out of this product. It’s not that hard and you can get it through the process. When people and users like your product you can make money but if they don’t, even the best business model won’t save you.

Not having co-founder

 Not having a cofounder is a serious problem because handling a start-up lonely is a tough job. So we advise you to look for a cofounder. If you couldn’t find anyone or no one was enthusiastic to work with you, change your idea in a way that others love to work with you.

University and college are the best opportunities to find your cofounder. After college time, you barely can find your cofounder, because most of your classmates are married or already hired in some positions.

Conferences are also places to find your cofounder but you can’t say whether a person is suitable as your cofounder without having a chance to work with him or her. So we recommend you not to lose your chances!

Not having an idea

Let’s consider it in two aspects. First, there were so many start-ups which changed their idea after launching. In our opinion, the founder is more important than the idea. But let’s see it in another aspect. If you don’t have any idea and you want to launch your start-up, what are you exactly going to do in the next step?

Don’t worry! We have a solution. Look for things that you feel the need of them in life and try to turn those ideas into reality.

The increasing number of start-ups

increasing day by day and it’s too much. Despite this belief, there isn’t any limit to this, because our needs are limitless.

Having a family who needs your support

    This is one of those reasons which you can’t ignore. We recommend this group of people start consulting business and then slowly change it into a product business. Another way to decrease the risk is to join a start-up.

Being financially independent

    People who are financially independent usually don’t launch a start-up because they don’t need more stress.

Not being ready to be committed

 Those who care about their freedom a lot will struggle to launch their start-up. Starting your business would take at least 3 or 4 years of you!

 Those who care about their freedom a lot will struggle to launch their start-up. Starting your busina would take at least 3 or 4 years of you! actually having a regular job would take as much time as a start-up.

Need to have a structure

 A group of people need to have a structure in their life or better to say: they should be told what to do or not! The first sentence was the polite form. If you belong to this group, we don’t recommend you to launch your start-up! In a good start-up, others won’t tell you what to do. Each person must realize what to do without being told.

Fear of uncertainty

So many of us hesitate to start our business and the reason is uncertainty. In a start-up, you may face every kind of obstacle and everything can happen. If you are afraid of this, you may better know something: There are two conditions, your start-up can become successful or a failure. If you fail, that’s not necessarily bad and you have to take it as an experience.

 Be hopeful but also expect bad things. If you fail, no one blames you.

Having a job is a default

Why do people go for a regular job? Because it’s a default. Default ideas or things are so powerful because they will get done without conscious choice.

There is a default for people except for criminals: if you need money, go look for a job. There was a default a hundred years ago, if they wanted to survive, they should have done farming. There has been a transition from farming to manufacturing. There is a possibility in which start-ups would be a start for a new transition.

پیدایش اپیدمی و به دنبال آن اقدامات مهارکننده‌ای که در چین انجام شد، اثرات شدیدی در کاهش تولیدات کارخانه‌ها و مصرف داخلی در چین و شرکای اقتصادی آن داشت. در دیگر کشورها نیز اقداماتی برای کنترل شیوع بیماری انجام شده است. همه این موارد شدیدا روی مشتریان و بازارهای مالی اثر می‌گذارد.


Start-ups are important not just because we can make money through them. New things are about to happen for fresh start-ups. They can be a beginning of a revolution.
