BizMiner for Startups
Industry Statistics for your startup business plan
More than most other visitors to our site, entrepreneurs are eager to find information that will validate (or caution them about) their new venture or new product marketing research.
Some of you have already made a decision and are writing a startup business plan to take to a bank or investors. Others are looking for industry trends to sharpen their understanding about what to expect from a particular type of business. In either case, you will need to compare your business vision and experience against industry averages for operations like yours, identifying strengths and explaining how you plan to overcome any concerning industry trends as you create a business plan.
We have a lot of information that can help entrepreneurs, especially in our Industry Financial, Startup Profit & Loss series and Market Research series.
We develop separate trends and measures for small businesses and startups in the Industry Financial and Startup Profit & Loss series. Much of our information is available in both national and local versions, so you can match your type of business and target market area to others in the same situation. In other words, we can help you understand how startup businesses that are pretty much just like yours are doing. That crucial information forms the competitive backdrop to your small business plan, your marketing plan - or to your evaluation of whether to go full steam ahead. It also helps you create your own performance and market targets, and alerts you to obstacles that you might need to address as you tell your story to a bank or investors. We can help you assess your startup business idea.
Our local and national Market Research Report Profiles ($99) address a series of competitive trend issues in your specific line of business, including average sales, total area market volume and failure rates for the industry and startups. The reports even track startups that began three years ago and report on the growth of those that made through that first, difficult period. You can easily compare your business vision to these real-life experiences for any of 6,500 industry segments in every state and most metro areas.
