According to Rustam Gilfanov, the development of a startup is a complex process that requires time, patience and the ability to confront difficulties. There are no universal tools for achieving success. However, the experiences of colleagues and international cases are always welcome. 

Gilfanov Rustam – to young businessmen 

Tip 1. Do not take advice as a guide for action

Perhaps this is the most important tip. What can be used for one startup is not always appropriate for another. Therefore, think twice before applying life hacks from successful businessmen to your audience – that may not work.

Tip 2. Hire "your people"

Of course, this is not about your sister or classmate, but rather about people who hold similar views and have the same ambition. To follow the trajectory of business development, you need to bring like-minded people whom you can trust together around one table.

Tip 3. Follow the rules

Your cooperation with key employees should be based not solely on words and trust but also on clear regulations. This will save you from unexpected financial expenses that can slow down the growth of your business for a number of years.

Tip 4. Invest in your startup

Business growth is directly related to the professional growth of your employees. Therefore, while other startups are paying dividends to shareholders, invest in the development of your business and your employees.

Rustam Gilfanov, together with partners, founded an IT company in 2006. Today this company is the largest developer of software for the gaming industry, marketing and finance.


Tip 5. Create additional products

Lead a brainstorm session for your team and determine the directions for the development of your additional product or service – a bonus to your main offer. Diversity, if it takes into account the needs of the target audience, always promotes business growth.

Company growth is one of the main goals for any novice businessman. Remember that giants like Google or Microsoft are yesterday’s startups. Nothing is impossible if you have faith in your idea and work in a team with “your people”!
