New Resources For Entrepreneurs
Google has just launched a new resource for businesses and entrepreneurs. According to Mashable, "Google took the wraps off “Google for Entrepreneurs,” a microsite that brings together information about Google’s programs and partnerships for startups and entrepreneurs."
I believe this is a good thing for Google because this program gets Googlels signature products used by entrepreneurs earlier on in their business life-cycle. It is sort of the equivalent of McDonalds hooking kids on their food by offering them a Happy Meal while they are young.
Crowdfunding For Entrepreneurs And Small Business
Believe it or not, small businesses, start-ups and entrepreneurs in the US can already benefit from crowdfunding their business online. There is no need to wait for the Securities and Exchange Commission to write the rules on the Jobs Act as long as you are not offering equity in exchange for generating funds for your business.
What is crowdfunding?
Crowdfunding is a way of raising funds specifically over the Internet via a rather large crowd of individuals. These might be friends, family or complete strangers.
There are some online tools available out there that let you raise funds online via crowdfunding but a new tool available specifically for businesses, start-ups and entrepreneurs is www.crowdcusp.com
Earn By Establishing An Online Course
As a business owner or entrepreneur, have you ever thought of putting together a course that would teach someone a valuable new skill in entrepreneurship or business? That is possible with the site Udemy. There are a few sites like it but, Udemy offers a way for you to feature you and your knowledge in the business world as an online course. You may offer essentially any type of legal subject that you can think up. You can also either offer the course as free or paid depending on your needs.
