How to start up your business in University

Many would agree that the best years in life are actually during our University life. Therefore, it would be a waste if one were to sail through the 4 years of university life in a mundane way.

Kr-page-starthere-640x480-600x400

1. Do something. Anything.

So if you are still in University, do something, anything. Seth Godin too puts it in his recent interview that you have to pick yourself:  “You want publish a book, publish it. You want to sing a song, sing it. You want to start a movement, start it.”  Mark Twain has my favourite quotes of all time, which I always remind myself:  “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

2. Get out of your comfort zone and meet more people

Most of us are preprogrammed to be in our comfort zone because we are brought up that way. When we are in university, it is common for us to stick with a bunch of friends where we are comfortable with from our year 1 till our final year. What a lot of people don’t realize is that once you explore beyond your own social circle, there is a higher possibility to cross path with someone that shares the same ambition as you. Also, when you meet new people, you could share with them your ideas and get real customer validation. It is this spirit of stepping out of your comfort zone and meeting new people that will help kick start your business ideas.

3. Get a good Mentor

Another tip to getting started is to find a good mentor.  The role of the mentor is to give you advices from his own experiences as well as pointing you at the correct direction. Your mentor could also open up a few doors for you and introduce you to some key individuals in the community. With a mentor, mistakes that could be detrimental can be avoided. Of course, the question is, how do you find these mentors? One way is to go for events and talk to them. Don’t be afraid to approach these prospective mentors because they, like yourself, are usually comfortable in talking to people.

4. Just do it

Bravery is needed to have contrary opinions and to take unexpected paths. If you’re not courageous, you’re going to be hanging around the water cooler, talking about the guy who actually is. A lot of times its not because things are difficult that we dare not, it’s because we dare not that things are difficult. So if there is something that you want to do but you are held back, you should go ahead with it because there is really nothing to lose.

5. Read a lot

With the advancement of technology as well as the ease of information sharing on the web, it is crucial for us to get updated with what is happening around the web and around the world. This facilitates learning as well as sharing of information, leveraging on the wisdom of the crowd to know what works and what does not work. Reading a lot can also help identify trends and new business ideas and models which could be used to refine your startup idea.  Other than just reading, one should cultivate the habit of reading everyday because there are too much content on the web nowadays, and if you stop for one day, you would miss out quite a lot that is happening in the local community as well as the global community.

London expedition. Chapter 1: the reasons

LONDON EXPEDITION
Chapter 1. The reasons
By Borja Alonso (Enfuse Youth Social Media Manager)

My name is Borja Alonso and I am the social media manager of Enfuse youth. Our mission is to transform young people passion/enthusiasm into a career they will love. However, today let’s forget about job descriptions as self descriptions, I am writing to tell you how I landed here and why.

As most of you know, Spain is a great country: good weather, friendly people, excellent Mediterranean food, the best football league over the world (Liga BBVA), maybe one of the best western Europe places to go on holidays… Apart from that, nowadays Spain is chasing the highest unemployment ratio ever in its history.  As some resources reveal BBC World News Spain is overtaking 5 million of unemployed workers.

Anyhow, it is not all truth. Since I have knowledge about economic themes: educators, politicians, people around coffee gatherings, … assume that in Spain there is something called “black economy”. This means that some of the business deals are done in the background scenario, so that, the Government can´t count them or even notice they exist. This “businesses” are not paying any tax, VAT or having any kind of security support. A simple example to clarify this point could be the cleaning ladies, plumbers, locksmiths,… These services provided by workers are well known as “black economy” examples. They go to your house to do their stuff and they normally won´t charge you any tax or vat, they will just give you an illegal ticket with no validity.

Ultimately, the unemployment crisis is not that all. Speaking about small deals, who is going to care? But, what about big deals? Those that moves millions of euros, don´t you think controlling this could save lots of job positions? I totally agree. But who is guilty? The Government maybe?

The ‘Black Economy’ applies to the minority, in spite of this fact, the crisis is out there and many families are suffering.

But what are the real reasons for this crisis?

At an international level, this crisis comes from the global recession fuelled from US Sub prime loans.

In addition we also had, and still having, an internal building crisis. As it happened in Netherlands with the tulip crisis or Tulip Mania in 1637. The tulips reached very high prices levels and then suddenly collapsed, they even overtook home prices. This is more or less what happened in Spain in the construction industry.  It became a situation where people could not deal with payments, so this crashed in a chain reaction affecting almost everyone, sooner or later.

These are the reasons why this unemployment peak currently exists in Spain and that´s why I came here, looking for place to live and work.

You may have noticed that there are many young Spanish people in the city of London.Don´t worry we, usually, don´t bite people =). The other day I read an article from a Spanish paper saying that a 25% of 20-25 years old workers have migrated to other countries in order to find a good job. Their favourites destinations were Germany and UK, amongst others.

So here are some details of why Spanish people have to go out there and find an alternative way to survive within this crisis. In terms of how are going to react those hosting countries, no worries, we are very qualified workers. And, for sure, some Spanish warm culture will be welcomed in these countries. And that´s why I landed in Enfuse Youth, where I am doing my best in the social media management and how to adapt the Spanish market thinking into the English one, which is much developed in some fields.  In next episodes I will explain more deeply how did I end in Enfuse youth, how long did take me to find a job in London and what is my feedback so far.
