The Cloud For Young Entrepreneurs

The Cloud For Young Entrepreneurs

The next generation of outstanding businesspeople will have mastered the cloud, without a doubt. But these businesspeople aren’t just the set of twenty- and thirtysomethings who were wise enough to capitalize on cloud as its import became clearer. The young among us will also stand out among the crowd as they delve into how much cloud computing can offer their seedling enterprises. The moms and dads of potential business powerhouses parent their young with classic cliches of resilience: “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.” Thanks to cloud computing, these youngsters can sell that lemonade like yet another proverbial edible: hotcakes.

Firstly, cloud allows young entrepreneurs to pace their growth. Its inherent technology allows them to harness a third-party service to manage affairs that cannot be prioritized as irrefutably necessary. (Video streaming is one aesthetically appealing example of such a task.) As demand and attention for a business mounts, the cloud can adjust to handle the added hoopla. Youngsters in business should also take to the cloud to economize, via the pay-as-you-go subscription options that have become de rigeur as of late. Paying for a service incrementally instead of in a lump sum saves cash and allows an entrepreneur to structure a plan to foster growth, not bridle or dread it.

Partnering up is the second advantage available to the young and business-inclined via cloud. Several large and well established organizations, such as Google, grant users (virtually) free access to their enormously helpful services. Such a set-up frees entrepreneurs from worry over mounting and maintaining an infrastructure for a good while. Multiple collaborators within a single business venture can employ Dropbox or Google Drive to harmonize their output. In fact, they can augment their staff, so to speak, with a tool like Freshbooks, which can almost act like an additional employee, albeit one whose sole focus is on invoicing. Again, this aspect of cloud computing allows an entrepreneur to concentrate on duties more critical to a business at present.

Lastly, cloud computing can pinpoint a young business’ progress. The technology has grown sophisticated enough to buoy a business who would have previously battled difficulty in exposure to reach customers and produce revenue. With tools like Google Analytics and Geckoboard, entrepreneurs can gauge activity and engagement on their websites and in their social media presence. When the new Meg Whitman or Warren Buffett sprouts, anticipate her or him beelining to the cloud to take launch and conquer.
