Business Development

Start-ups - where do I start?

Every successful business begins with a simple thought, an inventive idea or identifying a niche in the market which grows into a viable and commercial operation. For those looking to start their own business, it can seem a daunting task with a seemingly endless web of information available. However, seeking appropriate professional advice and assistance early on will simplify the process and allow you to focus on turning your idea into a reality. Two critical issues to consider during the early stages when launching your start-up business will be what entity or structure the business will operate, and how to fund the business through each stage of its lifecycle. These two considerations will form part of your business plan and the pitch to potential investors.

Client Story – Jeremy Nichols, Composure Group

When asked to describe his life using a film title, Jeremy Nichols, Founder and Managing Director of the Composure Group, answered “Life is Beautiful” and it’s not hard to see why. Jeremy has qualifications in Health Management and a MBA, he played for Melbourne FC during University and has been on the Board of the Club for 4 years. He founded Composure in 2013 after 20 years in the consulting industry. The group has a deep knowledge of human behaviour in an organisational context. They bring passion, energy and intelligence to helping organisations to play at their best, with a vision  based on Strategy, Culture and Leadership. When dealing with clients Jeremy sees culture as the elephant in the room “We all know it’s there but we’re not willing to confront it, we are not willing to talk about it, we are not willing to actually deal with because it’s often confronting”. He recently spoke with some of our younger staff members at Moore Stephens Vic.
