Grow Up!

The Web makes it easy to expand your business.

Entrepreneurs never had a better friend than the Web. There are plentiful sites dedicated to providing you with the information you need not only to jump-start your business in its early stages, but also to help it grow as you become more established. These three are worth a look: Log on here for the full text of Growth Company Guide 2000: Investors, Deal Structures, and Legal Strategies (Advisors to Business Inc.), a 275-page book written by attorney Clinton Richardson. It's full of tips and strategies for hunting down funding sources. A real strength: short, to-the-point definitions of key concepts. Can you define "bridge loan" or "earnups"? Flip through these pages, and you'll know. The print copy costs $129-but you can access it here for free. The aim here is to provide smaller companies and start-ups with the tools and resources they need to market themselves more effectively. Don't miss the site's marketing quiz, which tests your knowledge about the field and debunks a few myths in the process. Employees who want to work for a start-up belong to a different breed. Those interested in 401(k) plans, vacation policies and the like probably aren't going to thrive in the hurly-burly of a start-up. Enter, which offers a place for small businesses to list job openings and hunt for prospective employees who've registered themselves as interested in working for a start-up. The fees charged-$299 for 90 days of access-are kind of high, but it could be a smart investment.
