Turn your business dream into a reality with help from Adobe

COVID-19 has reshaped the business landscape around the world. While many businesses have closed, overall economic indicators are starting to look brighter as businesses adapt their products, operations, and customer experiences to this “new normal.” It may seem surprising, but some experts argue that the current landscape is favorable for entrepreneurs: Consumers are actively looking for new products and services that either help them meet COVID-19-specific needs or replace providers that closed during the pandemic. Labor is also more abundant than it has been in years, and e-commerce is more accessible than ever.

If you’ve dreamed of starting a business at home, Adobe can help you make it a reality.

Define your business and goals

Of course, not all types of businesses are well-positioned to take advantage of the new opportunities brought by COVID-19. If you’re thinking about starting a business at home right now, you should carefully consider your own skills, experience, and knowledge, as well as the product or service you want to provide. You should also understand COVID-19’s effect on the industry you’re trying to enter.

COVID-19 has impacted the retail, food service, fashion, and hospitality industries more than other sectors. That could be a reason to steer clear of those industries, but it could also be an opportunity for entrepreneurs with a vision for how to bring them into the post-pandemic world. In addition to understanding your industry’s prospects during COVID-19, you should define the role you want your new business to play in your life. Will this be a passion project, a side hustle to earn a little extra, or your main focus? Understanding the long-term goals and desires for your business will help you avoid making any decisions and investments you later regret.
