The politicians may be squabbling over how to pay for damage caused by the recent floods, but the focus for smart start-ups should be on how to plan for any future disaster.

Today on StartupSmart, we reveal at the top 10 things you should do to make your business disaster-ready. From drawing up a risk management plan to delegating responsibility, this list is one that you won’t want to overlook when Mother Nature wreaks havoc again.

Elsewhere, we profile Liquid Deals, a start-up that has found a niche within the group buying space, and mentor Marcia Griffin explains how to handle the follow-up to a sales pitch.

It’s just two weeks until entries for the 2011 StartupSmart Awards close. The winners will receive prizes, editorial coverage and mentorship. To enter, click here.
