新年和新的学习。该key for this 2021will be to respond to what knowledge and capabilities did we acquire or develop during the past year that we can use to our advantage to continue operating?

根据研究“beplay体育提款拉丁美洲的创业生态系统和加勒比地区反对Covid-19”the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), technological enterprises are those that can better enhance their capacities to be more agile; something that we have verified over the last few months of working with Justo, a startup that, together with my partner, we created in Chile in 2018 and now we have expanded to Mexico, Peru and Colombia.

We share these four lessons that, like us, will help you to be prepared in this new year:

1.倾听潜在客户的需求:justo.was founded thanks to the fact that a group of restaurants approached us to help them build a direct online sales channel and thus avoid the high commissions of交货apps; This is where we noticed the technological needs that restaurateurs lacked and we decided to undertake to help them regain control of their business. Without a doubt, actively listening to the needs of your potential clients will help you guide your venture towards what the public really requires and offer solutions with long-term growth potential.

2. Take care of your time:在2020年,米ore than three-quarters of the Mexican entrepreneurs surveyed by努力admitted to working more than 50 hours a week, generating stress and low productivity, so if you are looking to grow and take your business to the Next level, it is essential that you have spaces -both your own and for your team- to exchange ideas, innovate, as well as leisure and disconnection from day to day.

3. Keep your motivation fresh:我们留下了我们历史上最具挑战性的年份之一,肯定 - 它留下了情感标记。有趣的是要注意Association of Entrepreneurs of Mexico, 36% of Mexican entrepreneurs are afraid of failure, so it will be key to recognize that uncertainty will prevail and we will need constant motivation for the day to day. Some useful tools are to set short and medium term objectives; visualize what we want to achieve, what resources we have and in what time we can do it; Recognize the factors that we cannot control, as well as prepare ourselves to determine what risks we can take.

4. Create support networks:In Latin America, more than half of the entrepreneurs surveyed by theIDB承认他们试图用他们的工作团队解决大流行危机,而不诉诸别人的别人,这是经济还是情感的。这个2021的重要课程是记住建筑的力量和支持网络:家庭,朋友,合作者,工作队,同事,供应商;除了论坛,房间,协会,倾听如何克服不利季节的其他经验,促进联合工作,促进该部门的增长。让我们记住,社交距离并不意味着隔离:让我们寻找选择向前移动的选项,以及所有的利益。

We do not know what this new year has in store for us, what we do know is that part of the economic recovery and stability of the region will be driven by entrepreneurs and their capacity for enthusiasm, optimism, learning and adaptation skills. By joining forces we make sure to create virtuous circles, as well as strengthen a more supportive, empathetic and fair circular economy.
