WASHINGTON, DC – 17 May, 2017 – Almost one-third of employed workers dream of starting their own business, but only about one-in-six ever actually try to do it. Why? Aside from having enough money to start, many simply cite the lack of information about what to do as a key reason for not taking the plunge into entrepreneurship.
Surprisingly, no single online resource has existed for founders to seek coaching and action steps in on place to increase their chance for success… until today. After launching an online library of information for business founders to set up their companies, StartBlox now brings the library to life with an industry-first guided walk-through “wizard” called Coach.
With Coach, founders can unlock a custom program appropriate for their startup stage that provides step-by-step guidance to get them to the next stage of development. Entrepreneurs are still able to search StartBlox for startup content on their own via library mode, which has 350 content “blox” covering everything from choosing a name to hiring the first employees.
“No one starts a business because they love the administrative activities of starting up,” says Brian Browning, founder and CEO. “Entrepreneurs shouldn’t have to figure out on their own the 101 administrative tasks that all companies – no matter where they are or what industry they’re in – need to operate today.”
With the addition of Coach to the StartBlox app, founders see the entire picture of building a business while breaking the startup activities into manageable steps. Taking cues from software that walks users through a single linear process like tax filing or incorporating a business, StartBlox created a platform that brings together everything a business needs to plan, obtain, and operate numerous “back-office” activities.
“Imagine having a trusted friend walk you through everything you need to know and understand about starting a business – that’s what Coach does for our users,” Brian added.”StartBlox makes it easier for budding entrepreneurs to make their ideas become realities, and we help reduce fear of the unknown for those who haven’t yet taken the plunge.”
Since most founders get stuck on the very first hurdle in a starting a new business – the Planning stage – that guided program is the first one available in Coach. Users will find detailed content for first-step startups who need to research, write, and refine aspects of their business plan before they launch. Over the coming year, StartBlox will release a series of additional wizards in Coach to help founders legally form companies, choose the right business location, set up finance and software systems, market their product or service, and manage their teams.
