Regulatory and Risk Analysis
As a general rule, the formation and the pursuit of any business entity in Poland is open and free to everyone and on an equal-right basis. However, law regulations sometimes impose some limitations regarding the conduct of business. For instance, the pursuit of business activity in my field requires authorization and concession. Another limitation of conducting business in this place is establishing if a given business activity is a regulated activity in a given field. The pursuit of business ventures like mine has to meet specific requirements provided by law or registrar of businesses. Since I intend to be in business for a long time, concession will definitely hinder my progress. This can be attributed to the fact that the relevant body will permit the performance and commencement of my business for a definite period of not less than five years and no longer than 50 year. More so, the FBA might decide to regulate my business if a specific Act provides unless I fulfill and get registration in the Register of Regulated Work. Moreover, as the sole proprietor of my company owner, the law requires me to:
a) Bear liability with all my assets for the company’s obligation
b) I am compelled to make fixed monthly social security payments that might pull me down businesswise
The total startup cost for my family fun center is estimated to be approximately $120,000. This estimate includes leased improvements, insurance coverage, common fun center equipment, utility hookups, professional services, and initial; market entry advertising. I will finance 40 percent (48,000) of the startup cost from my personal savings and home equity. I have been saving some money for this business, and since I won’t be compelled to pay any interest or fee for this money, I will be more than willing to place my money in the business. Having understood the risks involved, my family and friends will contribute 10 percent (12,000) of the startup cost for my business. Considering that my family and friends are very close to me, we shall formalize the loan I get from them with a written agreement stating that I will repay the loan, but at a lower interest rate that any other source. The remaining 50 percent (60,000) of the startup shall be financed by my bank through a loan. I intend to repay this loan plus interest as my business progresses.

It is claimed that the prime market for a family fun center is in urban areas that are close to neighborhoods that have large numbers of upper and middle income bracket population, and that is why I choose %u0141ód%u017A as the location of my business. With an estimated population of 744,541 people in June 2009, %u0141ód%u017A is the best location for my business. This location satisfies my key customer needs as a majority of %u0141ód%u017A residents are family households with upper or middle income earners. I believe that the location of my business will be very instrumental to its success. Note that the primary target market for my business will consist of three main groups; 15 to 24 years old, 25 to 34 year olds and 35 to 54 years old.
Rybka Family Fun Center will be a sole proprietorship, 100 percent owned by myself (Patrycja Rybka) . Nevertheless, My Company’s philosophy will be based on mutual respect for all contributions that would be made by limited partners, consultants, investors, and employees regardless of their position in the company. I believe that I have the expertise and qualification of running this business to greater heights after I am through with my education. The management team within my company will be small in the beginning. As the founder, I will be the primary employee who will plan events and supervise the other employees. Apart from me, the following team will make up my employees
