The name Wicked Start, while irreverent and fun, is also a play on a slang definition of “wicked,” meaning masterful. A "wicked start" is a masterful way of starting a new business. At Wicked Start, we believe entrepreneurs and small business owners are on the forefront of business today, leading change and innovation with great ideas.
Starting a small business is one of the biggest decisions that you will ever make, and it can be as daunting as it is exciting. To be successful, you must take a lot of personal, financial and planning considerations into account. At Wicked Start, our objective is to combine a practical, manageable business approach with a dose of “heart” to manage these considerations during the entire small business startup process. This “heart” is compassion, which plays an instrumental role in how you create, drive and build a successful small business startup, based on principles, integrity, and best practices.

Many people fantasize about starting their own business, but never take that important first step in achieving their dream. Wicked Start: Guide to Starting a New Venture with Passion and Purpose by Wicked Start founder Bryan Janeczko, helps change that. This new ebook, now available on Amazon, encourages readers to harness their passion and leverage their sense of purpose to build and grow a meaningful and enduring new venture.
Wicked Start (www.wickedstart.com), the online startup accelerator, reveals that Food & Beverage, Retailing, and Business Products & Services were the top three types of business ideas developed in 2012, accounting for 36% of total new ideas being incubated. "Given current marketplace trends, in particular with more simplified access to online sales and distribution channels, we are not surprised that these types of business ideas are being developed," said Wicked Start Founder, Bryan Janeczko.
In my last post, I described a Web-based service called Wicked Start that can bring a measure of automation to the process of getting a new business off the ground. Wicked Start lays out a sort of template for each of 10 major steps in starting a company, suggesting ways to proceed, pointing out what might be overlooked, and offering various resources and advice. I also briefly mentioned a Wicked Start user: Hari Kaur, a yoga instructor who four months ago opened her own jazz-yoga studio in Manhattan, called Hari NYC. Ms. Kaur tried the Web site at the suggestion of one of her yoga students, who just happens to be the founder of Wicked Start, Bryan Janeczko.
