How to protect your small business (against big business)

A polite word for it is ‘research’, but you can also call it ‘corporate theft’.

Pavlo Phitids, Aurik Business Accelerator

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed Aurik Business Accelerator founder Pavlo Phitidis.

Phitidis spoke about how to protect your business against big business when it comes to things such as:

  • Tenders

  • Soliciting their business

  • Protecting your staff

  • Intellectual Property

  • Pricing

  • Protecting your business from their staff who as former buyers become your competitors.

This discussion took place on the back of a commitment by Business Leadership South Africa to support Small and Medium Sized Enterprises.

For more detail; listen to the interview in the audio below (and/or scroll down for more quotes from it).

You should always be weary of a tender without a crystal clear process.

You need to ask questions and become familiar with tenders.

If the tender isn’t absolutely clear; be cautious!

What people say they need - and what actually happens when you implement - are two different things.
