Enterprise companies are often thought of as having the potential to be a great career, but what they’re really really building is a business, writes Steve DeAngelo.
Enterprise companies are increasingly becoming a viable option for people wanting to make it big in tech.
Business Insider’s Ben Kuchera explores why it might be so.
Entrepreneurs have always made the business their first priority, so why are they making the transition from business to business?
“You can go to a bar, order a drink, go out, order another drink, come back, and you’re still on your first order,” says Sam Bialik, an entrepreneur and the founder of the business eXpand, an online marketplace for small businesses.
“You’re doing the business and you don’t have the time to do anything else, and it’s a great place to start your business.”
Bialik’s business was born in an entrepreneurial vacuum in 2015.
He and his partner had been searching for a way to make an e-commerce platform that could be more user-friendly and faster to use.
They wanted a platform that had a user interface and an easy-to-use product, and they thought that an eCommerce platform would be the perfect way to get there.
The business had no revenue, but they were still getting a ton of traffic and a steady stream of new customers, so they knew they had something big.
Bialiski started talking to other entrepreneurs and business owners about what their business could be and what they could do to be more successful.
At the same time, he was starting to make money as an entrepreneur, so he was also thinking about whether he wanted to go full time or work full time.
After a couple months, he figured he’d take a break from his work as an inventor and become an entrepreneur.
But the break didn’t last long.
In April, Bialiskis company, eXpan, launched its first e-store and business-to, which is where he started his business.
On May 31, Bialski launched his new venture.
His goal was to offer a platform for entrepreneurs to build their businesses, a service that he could then use to sell products to customers.
“What was interesting was that we had a very specific product and it was the same as what most other entrepreneurs had,” Bialiskyi says.
“We wanted to build a product that we could sell on a website that would make a lot of money for the entrepreneur.”
The business quickly caught the attention of many other entrepreneurs.
“I was just really impressed by the response, I mean, how many businesses that have been started on eXpo were successful,” says Josh Pohl, a business owner and founder of eXpean.
“They’re very focused on what they need, they’re not thinking about how much they want to grow their business, they just want to make a profit.
And it just blew my mind, just to see what they can do.”
The eXperts goal is to provide a better experience for the user.
“We’re making sure that our users are able to be their best selves,” says Bialisks co-founder, Matt Wahlberg.
“If you have a great product, you’re going to get feedback from your users, so that’s really the biggest thing.
That feedback is the best feedback, because it’s not just ‘okay, I like this, this is what I did.’
It’s ‘oh, this helps me make more money, I want to get that in my pocket.'”
In addition to a platform to sell their products, e-Xpan also sells a tool that helps entrepreneurs make better product decisions.
When a user enters a product information field, they can choose to customize it, like whether they want a QR code or a QR link, or even create their own content to customize the product, such as a photo gallery of the product and its packaging.
Each customer is able to have up to six different items on their cart, so when they go to checkout, they have an option to select more than six items to customize their cart.
It’s a small price to pay for the fact that the user has more options and control.
With all of that information, a user can make a decision about what they want.
Instead of having to make the decision, the user just taps on a button to enter their information and get the product.
“People have a tendency to go to the site, put the product in their cart and then leave,” Bialsik says.
A user has the ability to save a product and return it to the website.
“That way, if they don’t like the product or they’re going through some pain,
