I think there are two different general approaches to a start up company
1. Put you feet in the water and Wade-In. These companies typically start with two or three employees and slowly grow with the market often times taking years to break through the red. They can be quite rewarding with good cost control efforts but often times overall activity is very limited because of size and resources.
2. Dive-In. If you have done your research and understand your market capabilities then you can jump in with five or ten employees and start swimming. Dive in start ups involve more risk and financial backing. A good business plan is necessary as well. The reward for successful Dive-Ins can be serious GAP and an opportunity to grow the business stronger and diversify within your market.
I want to here some Dive-in success stories and some wade-in ones as well.
