The challenges of starting a new business

By: Esteban Alonso

As we continue building the path of expanding our roots to the United States and Canada, at Sofka Technologies we are inspired by the opportunity to share insights from our journey in the dynamic world of technology and entrepreneurship.

In this edition of my newsletter, I invite you to explore the captivating world of business, the challenges, triumphs, and the invaluable lessons that shape not only the company but also the individuals who steer its course.

Therefore, I want to share with you my thoughts that I believe are important to success in a new project:

  1. Embracing the Uncertainties: The initial steps: The inception of a business is often a leap into the unknown. We face the challenges of embracing uncertainties, transforming challenges into opportunities for growth, and pivoting the original idea. Be ready to fall and start again, being flexible, disciplined and recursive. 
  2. Resilience in the Face of Setbacks: A test of value from finding hurdles to unforeseen market shifts, starting a business tests our resilience. This gives us the opportunity to explore how to pave the way for remarkable comebacks. Don’t give up!
  3. From Vision to Reality: Many of us have dreams, ideas and projects but more often remain still, so the most important challenge is to transform them into a reality. Do you know what’s the key? Working hard, long term vision with short term action, and one step at a time looking at the main purpose. It is like a baby learning to run. First, they must learn to sit, then crawl, walk, and eventually they will  be able to run. Keep moving forward and be patient!
  4. Cultivating a Winning Team: People behind the vision, behind every successful startup, there’s a dedicated team. Learn how you foster a culture that empowers your team to collectively drive the company’s success. By yourself you might move faster, but with a committed team you will go further!
  5. Growth Mindset: It is a key to achieving success in your business. It enables you to maintain a competitive edge, attract top talent, and seize global opportunities, ensuring long-term viability. When growth stops, your business begins to decline.

Our journey is a reference to the determination, passion, and unwavering belief in the transformative power of technology. As we step onto new shores, we extend our gratitude to each of you who has been part of our under construction story. 

Stay connected with us on LinkedIn for more insights and discussions that show the fascinating path of entrepreneurship. I want to continue inspiring and supporting one another as we continue facing the challenges of starting and scaling businesses.
