The Best Ways to Fund Your Startup

A successful start-up requires money, especially in its first stages. Without the necessary funds to start your business, you will not be able to pursue the venture. Therefore, it is essential to understand how to best fund your start-up, and there are a few tried-and-tested ways.

For starters, your personal credit is a significant factor to consider. As an entrepreneur, you will make your way to the bank for a loan, and if you are in debt or do not have a good line of credit, you will not receive the necessary funds. Furthermore, you need to think long and hard about what your business idea is and what its purpose is, learn how to attract investors, or even try your luck at crowdfunding. The next two examples could include either getting more clients or applying for a business grant. All of the aforementioned will be explained in greater detail below.

Tres anuncios para una Argentina mejor conectada

                        Tres anuncios para una Argentina mejor conectada

El martes el Gobierno presentó los avances del Plan Nacional de Conectividad, que muestran el enorme progreso de estos años en materia de conexión a Internet en la Argentina.

En diciembre de 2015, el país estaba poco conectado, con baja velocidad de banda ancha y poca penetración de fibra óptica e Internet móvil. El objetivo fue conectar más localidades, mejorar la velocidad y la cobertura y bajar los precios.

Desde entonces, las conexiones a Internet fija aumentaron en un 20%, la velocidad promedio de banda ancha pasó de 4,5 megabits por segundo a 14, el despliegue de 4G pasó de cubrir al 10% de la población al 58% y la red de fibra óptica de ARSAT pasó de tener 6.500 kilómetros en funcionamiento y conectar 17 localidades a 30.000 kilómetros y 550 localidades.

Estos objetivos se están alcanzando gracias a una dinámica inteligente en la que la inversión en infraestructura es liderada por el sector privado y el Estado actúa en aquellos lugares a los que el mercado no llega.

Para profundizar estos avances y acercarnos más al objetivo de erradicar la brecha digital, el plan incorpora nuevas medidas que van a potenciar el desarrollo de infraestructura. Algunas de ellas:

  1. Baja del precio mayorista de internet que comercializa ARSAT. El monto pasará de 14 dólares a 10 dólares por mega. La baja beneficiará a pequeños operadores de las más de 500 localidades por donde pasa el Plan Federal de Internet, y que a fines de 2019 serán 1300.
  2. Líneas de crédito y aportes por $2.400 millones para desarrollar infraestructura. Las líneas incluyen aportes no reembolsables financiados con el Fondo de Servicio Universal (que se compone con el 1% de los ingresos de los prestadores de servicios de telecomunicaciones), préstamos a bancos públicos con una tasa subsidiada destinados a financiar redes de última milla (que llevan el servicio desde el cable de ARSAT a los hogares), préstamos ya acordados con el BICE y una línea ajustable por UVA del Banco Nación.
  3. Cobertura 4G. Un nuevo cronograma de despliegue 4G para que el 93% de la población esté conectada a internet móvil para final del 2019. Esto incluye el despliegue en 1.713 ciudades de más de 10.000 habitantes, a lo largo de 10.000 kilómetros de rutas y en 200 pequeñas localidades turísticas y productivas que hoy no cuentan con internet móvil de calidad.

Jacob Gottlieb’s Decisions on Visium

Jacob Gottlieb’s Decisions on Visium

Jacob Gottlieb is the pioneer of the asset management firm. The company had experienced a positive growth rate until allegations were made against its trading practices. Some of the critics argued that some of the managers engaged in insider trading. This is a serious allegation and has been one of the main reasons for the shutdown of many firms around the globe. Organizations are expected to adhere to set ethical standards in their operations. The value of a company’s stocks is highly influenced by its activities. Any changes or decisions affecting the firm affect the value of the stocks. Therefore, the management and other senior officials of a company have the upper hand when it comes to the stock trading as they have access to confidential information that is not revealed to the members of the public. Insider trading is an illegal practice and is prosecutable in a court of law.
