New Business Venture

Are you thinking of starting on a New Business Venture?

Starting a business of your own is both exhilarating and thrilling. However, it is what happens after the thrill subsides that will determine whether your business will be a success. It is your job to make this period of excitement last as long as humanly possible.

In order to realize your ambitions of owning a profitable business, you will need to have a methodical business plan for building your new company. The approach you decide to take will determine your success in the marketplace. Our company can help you avoid the most common mistakes made by new small business owners in the beginning of their undertaking. With our assistance, you can be sure that your business will start its operations with all of the tools necessary to become profitable.

Lopato & Associates will help you with a new business venture to...

  • Develop a start-up business plan to refine your financial, marketing, and management plans.
  • Identify how much capital you will need to start all of your business operations.
  • Identify possible sources of start-up capital, as well as back-up sources if they will be necessary.
  • Determine how much money you will be able to borrow should you need to take out a loan to start your business.
  • Evaluate your business's legal exposure, tax advantages, portability and ease of operation to choose the business structure that is best suited for your specific needs.
