Year-End Gift of Trends 2021
Christopher Knight and Ellen J Harris share their insights on trends to watch in 2021
The growth of startups in 2021.
The first trend is having a business infrastructure in place that supports the business the startup owner envisions as well as investments from friends and family. Investment and infrastructure includes coaching, mentorship, continuous self investment and self improvement.
The second trend is Agility. Fortune 500 companies cannot turn a business around overnight. The startup has the ability and the advantage of being able to shift quickly or turn on a dime. A big secret of business owners in business over 10 years or more is the turn envisioned takes time to implement. Agility involves ‘no fear'. Just do what your idea is driving you to accomplish. Continue to become comfortable with what you do, what you want your startup to be.
The third trend is Joint Venture. Some startups realize accelerated growth because they are creative and desire growth. These accelerator startups meet, connect, and explore potential market opportunities. Those startups combine skills and market analysis to shape the startup as well as shaping the mindset of the founders.
The fourth trend is virtual businesses. Traditional brick and mortar businesses are adopting the virtual business model because of the CoronaVirus Pandemic. Companies like Siemens announced they will become a virtual company for the foreseeable future.
Siemens AG is a German multinational conglomerate company headquartered in Munich and the largest industrial manufacturing company in Europe with branch offices abroad.
Virtual Teams will become a lucrative skill to have for the next 5 to 10 years.
Startup projects will become the next opportunity for startups as well as for people still finding opportunities to earn income.
The Fifth Trend is Technological Disruption. Is your startup disruptive changing the way business is done? The nature of work is shifting. You change the way people think, act and create a difference in the marketplace. You must set yourself apart from the norm.
The sixth trend is the Make-Your-Pitch team is offering startups the opportunity to speak with Christopher and Ellen to evaluate your idea and determine if you are on the right path with your business.
