A MESSAGE FROM OUR FOUNDER There has been a 45 increase in women owned businesses from 2007 2016, which is five times the national average and the state of Georgia in particular has been on several of America s top ten lists as one of the states to start and grow a business. However, most up and coming entrepreneurs have limited time, a limited budget and limited know how. % - – ' - The biggest problem is the lack of understanding of what to do and the necessary legal steps that are required to set up a business. Still yet, there are some brave entrepreneurs that have extreme passion and set out to do it all on their own but often times when they are confronted with the legal paperwork, acquiring licenses and permits, and building a website among other things that enthusiasm quickly wanes and turns into frustration and ultimately the business plan is never put into action. - Furthermore, these brave souls often yield poor quality visual branding results and or miss crucial regulatory steps that could cause legal problems and steep fines down the road. And let s face it, the majority of entrepreneurs do not have the money to hire expensive lawyers or business consultants to help them with this process either. / ’ To add to the list most entrepreneurs have full time secular jobs that provide consistent income that allows them to provide for their families and would rather settle for being unhappy at their job rather than deal with the uncertainties of business ownership. – - Therefore, a new strategy utilizing experienced and dedicated business managers that is fast and affordable and easy to use to help women be successful in setting up their small business is definitely needed but no one in our community is offering services that encompass ALL aspects of the business set up process. - We find that our competitors offer some but not all the services a new start up would need and customers would have to utilize decentralized and expensive services to complete the entire process. With women seeking to start their own business at an unprecedented rate, they are looking for an easier, faster and more affordable option that lawyers, business and branding consultants are failing to provide. - Running Start Partners was created with an effort to solve all of the problems just mentioned. Our online Business On Demand system offers a superior and fast approach to the business set up process and our company is the first in our area to offer it. The availability of the internet allows us to differentiate on price as well, offering an inexpensive online course option for those that choose to do it themselves, an automated online on demand system, as well as premium services with a more hands on approach from our dedicated business managers. - - To conclude, Running Start Partners was designed with a business model to meet the growing appetite for greater convenience, speed and simplicity that consumers have grown accustomed to. The ground transportation Uber and television Hulu industries are prime examples in the on demand world and our company has aligned itself with this new on demand concept that provides real time services to our customers. We are able to do this by successfully leveraging technology and have been able to offer services in a far more cost effective way than our competitors that provide our customers with a REAL business to market and grow! ( ) ( ) - - - - At the heart of Running Start Partners is educating women on what is necessary to set up their business and then actually walking them through actionable steps to make their business a reality.
