Launching a Business on Your Own (Without a Business Partner)

Discover the benefits of going solo – from keeping all profits to making decisions independently – and the potential risks, including the weight of sole financial responsibility and limited resources.

Bringing in Investors

We explore the advantages of having investors to accelerate growth, mentorship, and credibility, along with the potential pressures, like the loss of control and dependency on investor funds.
