According to the latest 2016 Silicon Valley Bank’s seventh annual Startup Outlook report, most startups face tremendous challenges in the following top 3 areas:
- Customer Acquisition (Business condition) – Uncertainty in global economy remains, and 18% of startups expect business conditions to get worse in 2016.
- Talent Acquisition – 95% of startups feel challenging to find people with the right skills to grow.
- Funding acquisition – With the current high volatility in the financial market, 82% of startups feel fundraising extremely challenging.
All these three challenges of startups are extremely tough to solve with solution out in the marketplace. It is critical that we look at these issues from a complete 360-degree view solution.
What if you can resolve all these three challenges in one collaborative solution?
eZ-Xpo’s JumpStart 3-in-1 solution specifically addresses all these three challenges with the following key features and benefits:
1. Customer Acquisition with eZ-Xpo’s Virtual Collaborative Network
Instead of wasting endless online advertising money for traffic, every startup should consider creating their virtual business ecosystem by collaborating with their channel partners and customers through networks of virtual expos; virtual summit, and virtual training. Not only this will help create a long-term sustainable bondage between strategic partners and clients; but also create a new game changer sustainable competitive advantage against the competition.
2. Talent Acquisition with eZ-Xpo’s Virtual Career Expo Network
Instead of wasting expensive headhunting costs on finding the best-skilled talent, every startup should consider building out their Virtual Job Expo to nurture their best talent candidate. Finding the best talent is similar to finding the next new customer because both require relationship nurturing. Startups should consider finding the best interns through partnering with local colleges and universities. Every Virtual Career Expo is equipped with an onboard training solution that can empower every new employee to learn new products/services quickly for higher productivity.
3. Funding Acquisition with eZ-Xpo’s Virtual Pitch Network
Every day we see startup pitch everywhere. There seems to be more startup pitch than the weekly reality show. The challenge is to find an Angel Network or Venture Capital Network where every startup can nurture the relationship with every stakeholder (i.e., investor, channel partner, and customer).
eZ-Xpo’s Virtual Pitch Network can help bridge the gaps across every stakeholder to empower startups to nurture the relationship with potential investors locally, nationally, and globally with deal flows every day.
Finally, every co-workspace and Angel/VC Network should consider building out their own Virtual Startup Ecosystem to where they can empower every startup to find the next customer, the next best talent, and the next strategic channel for a long-term sustainable competitive advantage for win-win-win benefits.
