Everyone brings something different to their own Start-Up. You have a business idea; you’ve seen a gap in the market and know just what would fit there. You want to bring a new perspective to an existing market or product. You will be bringing your own specialist knowledge to the fore by starting out on your own.
It isn’t just the different offerings that make start up companies so diverse. There is no template; it might be your first, it might be your fifth but the culture, structure and even physical office space will never be the same twice.
So what is similar across Start-Ups? What is the DNA; the building blocks? Wayra UK are looking to answer that question by surveying Start-Ups across all sectors in the UK and using these insights to create a key report detailing the social and cultural make up of companies in their early years. Using the diversity seen in large companies as a starting point they are aiming to see what diversity exists and how this translates into a dividend for new ventures. [http://startupdna.co.uk/]
