If you’re looking to start a business and be an entrepreneur, you should never shy away from the most profitable industry of the last decade: new technology. Tech based businesses have been extremely successful in the last 20 years and show no sign of slowing down. It might seem daunting to decide on a great tech idea for your business, but it won’t be too hard if you stick to a quality framework and get some help.
Even if you aren’t from a tech background, there’s no reason you can’t go into tech with a great idea and build an amazing business from scratch. It just depends on whether or not you have the grit to roll with the punches you’ll experience and come out on top.
Proven but Original
When coming up with a tech idea for your new business, you need to find a proven niche to enter but you must have something that differentiates you from the pack. For example, Airbnb has proven that the model of sharing homes across the world is something people like. Everyone loves Airbnb; it has taken the world by storm.
It will be extremely difficult to challenge a company like Airbnb if you simply build a 3rd party version of the app. However, you can use the idea to inspire you into something else; instead of a shared home company, you could build a shared motorcycle company. Use the inspiration of others without simply copying them and you’ll find success; they have proven the niche is successful for you.
Challenging Big Tech
Here’s another reason why you shouldn’t just copy existing businesses: to put it frankly, you probably don’t have the capital to challenge big tech companies that already have existing businesses.
If you wanted to build the next great Windows computer, you’re going to need millions of dollars to invent the computer, market it against Dell, and hope that you’ll somehow come out on top. Fair warning: it’s probably not going to happen. Find a business idea that is unique so that you won’t be drowned out by big tech companies before you even have the change to hit the ground.
Turning an Idea to a Business
Whether your tech idea is for an app or a new product, having an idea isn’t enough. If you want to profit from your idea, you have to actually turn it into a business. Too many people say that they had the business idea for Uber a long time ago; it doesn’t matter at all if you didn’t do anything about it.
