In these days starting out a business is more exciting than ever. Why? Because Billions of dollars are being spent in form of venture capital by the venture capital firms, and many of them are helping more and more companies from the very early stages of its creation, because experience have shown it is not about how much money you invest in a company, it is about how strong is the business model or how intelligent is the idea of the owner.
Many investors today are giving $6,000.00, $10,000.00 or $30,000.00 to start up a company for a 5% of its total shares. Many investment companies still require 20% or 40% ownership of the company if they are going to invest $30,000.00-$1,000,000.00 or more.
The reality of these days is that many tech companies only require a small investment to run, because almost all its software is free, like MySql database, PHP programming language, and many other tools. Now thanks to the Internet we can do market research at a fraction of the cost compared with big budget companies dedicated exclusively to this aspect of business.
