Why I suggest low investment business ideas to first time entrepreneurs? Investing all the money into one stock is a bad idea (I just lost 16k in Zomato shares by shorting it in intraday trade, but luckily I had made good money from Zomato during its run to Rs168/share.. so I am still in profit. But trading Zomato is a risky game because it is overvalued and the market sentiments still continue to be in its favor).

Anyway, the point is that without understanding the intricacies of business, directly venturing into a high budget business is a poor thought. What’s a good strategy? There are many. One such strategy is to start with any low investment business ideas and then gradually increase the business.

Are low investment business ideas worth trying?

Some people do look for low investment high profit business ideas, which does sound cool and smart but being realistic we should understand that most of such ideas are very high risk business ideas and prone to fail. 

A few do succeed – like if someone had invested in Bitcoin in 2009, or let’s say even in 2019. But that’s the thing, the risk is way too high. It can peak, but it can sink too. We never know. It’s like blind betting. I personally believe in the calculated way, taking the safe route with minimal to manageable risk. 

Alternatively, if I have disposable income, I would not hesitate investing 5% of it in high risk opportunities. But again, I am not recommending it to anyone, we all must only venture into something that we truly understand.

Expectations from the opportunities shared in this insight

Just to set the expectations right – pursuing any of the below mentioned low investment business ideas doesn’t guarantee that you will become the next billionaire or millionaire, but yeah, if you do the business in the right way and tackle the competition with the quality of your service/product – most prolly, you would earn good return rates on your income.
