Задание №9
How do you really make it happen? How do you raise the 1)…….? Is there anywhere you can go for help?
Chidi Ngwaba says funding a business yourself with savings is ´a bit like having a baby. I feel like we´re living a dream.´
Their 2)……. was to open a place selling healthy fresh-cooked, vegetarian food. Neither Chidi nor his wife, Uchenna, has any experience of food, other than eating it. Their cash has stretched to employing a team of people to run their company, Plant, and they hope to have three more outlets by the end of the year. The Ngwabas believe they have no direct competition. ´I think it´s something new,´ Ms Ngwaba says confidently. If things don´t work out, they´ll sell their house and move in with their parents.
The need to feel safe and the fear of 3)…….can often stop people taking their first steps towards starting up a business. But according to Simon Woodroffe, founder of the restaurant chain YO! Sushi, it is the fear of not following your dream which moves people. It is better to
try and fail than never to have tried, he believes. When I ask himwhether now is a difficult time to start a business, Mr Woodroffe says: ´It´s always the right time to 4)……. a business.´ With YO! Sushi now quite stable, Mr Woodroffe is starting new ventures. YOTEL! and Body YO! are coming soon.
Similarly motivated is Mark Blandford, founder of online agency Sportingbet. Sportingbet went live in October 1998, with no customers and no turnover. Today he says: ´We´re a profitable dot.com.´ His expected 5)…….this year is £927 million.
And his advice for would-be entrepreneurs? ´Have a vision, spot a new niche and be I sufficiently convinced to go for it 100%.´ It´s not the advice a bank would offer. A banker´s advice would centre more on researching your idea and on drawing up detailed business plans. You probably need both to get started.
