Innovation and startups help drive a nation’s economy forward as a key engine of economic growth. Thanks to the lean start-up process and technology advances, entrepreneurs are scaling companies to sizeable revenues with smaller teams and less cash than just a few years ago. The cycle of innovation is speeding up, and talented entrepreneurs are ready to take over and invent the next disruptive technologies.
At KPMG LLP (KPMG), we understand the importance of entrepreneurs working to transform new ideas into thriving companies. Founders face considerable challenges as they work to bring new ideas to the marketplace while taking incremental leadership responsibilities. Raising capital, finding talent, acquiring customers, complying with regulatory requirements, and other management initiatives take time and are important to maximize business success. We are delighted to share highlights from our experience in this guide including operational, financial, tax and accounting matters, and other business considerations.
We have been committed to serving startup companies around the world for many years and hope you find this guide insightful.
