To make a long story short, we’ve checked and listed below the most valuable business trends of startups in 2018. It’s important to note that some of them were predicted as new business trends one or two years earlier and still remain in their positions.
No More Overpriced Offices
A lot of experts predict, that soon many startup owners will make the decision to relocate their offices from downtowns to suburbs. This is a trend for all small businesses, and we think this is a smart decision. A lot of startups failed because of the high starting expenses. Being efficient is the new sexy for startups. You may have noticed that many newcomers start not from active work but from buying all attributes of a successful business. A startup is not a Macbook and coffee or an expensive office. It’s your ideas multiplied by hard work. Soon we will see startups with extremely low overhead costs and expenses.
No More Apps
We tend to think that startups are only for the IT sphere, but it isn’t true. A lot of new startups are focused on new spheres. They are represented in construction, home design, medicine etc. The market is not only IT, and this is a good idea for those who want to start their own business but understand that the high competition in IT field isn’t for them. Medicine, science, agriculture, economy and many other spheres need new ideas for their successful development. It’s not just a business trend; it is the way of world economy development.
Work on a startup is very interesting and a bit of a challenge, but a lot of entrepreneurs forget about security questions. The question isn’t in security itself, but the branch of security is one of the most valuable and in-demand in IT. Security software now is nearly the best IT startup idea. There is a manpower shortage here, and in 2018 we expect new technology startup trends in security areas and software development. The sad history of thefting scenarios for future seasons of the popular TV show “Game of Thrones” is a good example of security importance. This and other incident may force businesses to hire more IT security specialists and invest funds in such software.
New industries mean more new opportunities. It means you can use them for your business to grow well or to try your current experience to create new products for new area. This unlock a lot of possibilities for you, but it’s also very risky. Nevertheless, this is the main trend of the coming year. Working with your eyes open gives you the chance to explore international opportunities for you personally or for your business itself. Every year distant countries become a bit closer, and its own market may become a great opportunity for your product.
The world of startups is fast growing and very dynamic. But it doesn’t mean that you must be fast too or left aside. No! Just try to be better every day and work together (or ask for help) with real enthusiasts and professionals, and we give you a guarantee to success!
