Do Not Want to Start a Business from Scratch? Here are 5 Alternatives You Should Explore

You have always dreamt of being an entrepreneur but starting from scratch may be daunting to you. It is not necessary for every entrepreneur to start from the bottom, there are a few alternative options which we have discussed below that you can explore;

  1. Purchase an Existing Business:

Buying an already existing company which is achieving good profits is the ideal option to fulfil your entrepreneurship dream. You need to have enough capital to do so but you will also save a lot of money on the initial business set up and the customers will already be familiar with the brand hence that will save your marketing efforts.

  1. Invest in Other’s Start-up:

If you do not have the capital to buy an entire business, invest your money on a start-up and wait for it to make profits so that you get your return on investment. This way you will not have to quit your day job or hire a team, your only role is to invest in the company shares. But remember, you cannot be actively involved in the companies functioning, you will just need to act as a silent partner. You can also consider the Seven Steps in New Venture Start-Up

  1. Partnership with an Existing Business:

Investing in business sometimes may not be what you really want as you wish to be part of the company processes and decision making as well hence becoming a partner in a start-up can do that for you. You can be in the work field rather than the side-lines and show your expertise.

  1. Stock Market Investments:

Instead of investing in a particular company shares, why not invest in the stock market? The advantage is that you can diversify your investment and that will reduce risks and increase profits. Forex trading is another option which can give lucrative returns. As explained by, due to the increasing popularity of bitcoin in public, bitcoin trading has become the hottest investment option in today’s market which will give you good profits.

  1. Intrapreneurship:

Many large companies have the option where individuals can lead a new business line making them an entrepreneur in their company. It’s like the company gives you capital and lets you build a business within it. This reduces personal risk and also gives you the freedom to make decisions. You do not have to worry about the losses as it is not your liability and the company will bear it. The only downside is that you will have to share a large part of the profits with the company as they are the major shareholder.

  1. Get a Franchise:

Becoming a franchise owner is both hassle-free and beneficial monetary wise. An already recognized brand can make you the franchise owner in your locality. As people already know the brand, you do not have to do aggressive marketing and the royalties you will receive from the company will be great.


These alternative options will help you live your entrepreneurship goals without the need to start a business from scratch. But if nothing clicks then it is time for you to buckle up and start your own business from scratch
