Bangalore: Starting a small or a medium business brings along with itself a long list of risks. The small but crucial amount of money invested, the fear of acceptance by others, and the perennial changing technology are among many of those factors that risk the sustenance of an SMB.

It’s also quite common where you get to see small businesses fizzle out about two years after beginning. Indian SMBs are pretty well known for their easy start, the hype, the excitement and later on, the sudden impedance. So, what might be the real problem behind this hindrance? Lack of planning, ideas, poor infrastructure and so many.

So with that said, here are 7 golden, money-saving ideas for SMBs.

Linux operating systems added more value to desktops. Today, almost 80 percent of businesses across the globe use Linux servers to run processes smoothly.
