The failure rate for start-ups across sectors continues to be a cause for much concern. In some sectors this has been as high as 80% within two years of start up. Important in this regard is the vast amount of capital that's injected into start-ups which does not translate to long-term value or meaningful benefits for business owners and in several instances investors in one form or another.

Statistics suggest that 46% of failures have been due to a lack of awareness of issues that are undermining the business, 30% managerial inexperience and 11% industry Inexperience. Examples of issues that have undermined start-ups include but are not limited to strategic myopia, poor or no business planning, weak operational framework, inconsistent product quality and poor or no accounting.

Mindful of these and other issues the Excelligence Starting Right programme, by way of it's 3 Dimensional framework will broadly examines a series of readiness factors as important prerequisites to ensuring structural integrity for your business, while helping you to build a framework and development plan that can attract and sustain revenue flows in the medium to long term.
