Have You Considered Buying an Existing Spring Green Business?

An excellent way to get started in business is to Buy a Business in Wisconsin. Follow that link and you may find several good businesses for sale in Spring Green.

For anybody who wants to buy a business, we recommend reading this useful article: Buying a Business.

Picking a Company Name

Making the right decision when choosing a company name is very important. There are many decisions you'll make now that you can change later, but changing a company name years down the road is not very easy. So, choose a good company name at the outset.

We strongly advocate that you make sure the ".com" domain name is available for your company name. Every business needs a strong Web presence these days, and having a non ".com" domain means somebody else may outrank you in the search results for your own company name.

To get up to speed on what makes for a good company name, we encourage you to read this useful article: Naming a Business.

As a final piece of advice, remember that because you are starting a business in Spring Green, it's imperative that you check now that no other Wisconsin company is using the business name you want to use.

Where to Get Money to Start a Company

Getting your Spring Green business the capital it needs to succeed is not an easy task. Bootstrapping, which means growing the business without outside funding, is the best alternative, but that's not a viable option for many startup plans.

Fortunately, this site contains dozens of articles on raising money, including one we recommend entitled 504 Loans.

For Spring Green entrepreneurs in need of startup financing, we have assembled a List of Wisconsin Angel Investors and our List of Wisconsin Venture Capital Firms.

Increase Your Entrepreneurial Knowledge

Successful entrepreneurs recognize that what they know now may not be enough to ensure their future success.

Given that you are starting a business in Spring Green, Wisconsin, you will want to take advantage of the learning programs at local Wisconsin educational institutions. It's also worthwhile to see if there are any networking groups or organizations in which Spring Green entrepreneurs get together to network and trade their business experiences.
