[Image: shutterstock315829094.jpg]

Starting a business is as exciting as it is scary.

After all, with the privilege of being your own boss comes the risk that the company might fail.

There are ways to minimize the risk of starting a business by being prepared and having the right knowledge and the adequate tools at hand.
Reading tons of books is one way of doing that, but another one is taking up a course.

For those of us who simply can't afford to spend too much time at university, online courses are the best solution. Not only are they inexpensive, but you can also learn at your own pace, from the comfort of your own home.
We rounded up the best classes that will teach budding entrepreneurs all they need to know, from using tools such as Excel, to building their brand online, as well as the fundamentals of business administration.

If these classes aren't up your street, there are thousands more you can also enroll in for just £10 with the promo code "DEC10ALL." Below are the nine most important things you should know when starting a business, and the courses which can teach you each one.

1. The basics of entrepreneurship

Birchbox, Yelp, OKCupid were all startups founded by MBA – Masters of Business Administration – holders. An MBA is, however, a time consuming and money draining course. Luckily, Professor Chris Haroun created a program on Udemy which encompasses an entire MBA in just one course.

Not only will this course teach you the best qualities of entrepreneurs, but you'll also learn how to network and get meetings, and the basics of macro and micro economics, as well as how to value companies. "An Entire MBA in 1 Course" is undoubtably the most thorough, and invaluable resource for anyone starting a company. Not to mention the number one best selling course on Udemy.

2. Web development

Any company needs a good, well-designed, and user-friendly website. That being said, paying for a freelancer to build your website can be expensive, and new company owners should invest their money wisely at the conception of their business.

"The Complete Web Developer Course 2.0" is lead by Rob Percival, and will teach anyone how to build beautiful websites by the end of the course.

3. How to build a brand

Building a brand for your company is probably one of the most important things to get right when starting a business. Social media and marketing can be powerful tools if you use them properly, or could also destroy your newly-founded business if you slip up. Luckily, specialist Gary Vaynerchuck imparts all of his knowledge in his best-selling Udemy course from how to use social media, to marketing strategies.
