Friday Brown Bag Series Topic: KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) for Startups. Oxymoron or essential?

Metrics in a startup often involve basic survival. My friend called it the "relish" diet. "We are out of hot dogs, down to the little relish packets . . . ." Yet investors like/want/need metrics, often to an absurd level (for a startup), to try and mitigate their (and your) lack of understanding of your business. Yet metrics can also help tell your evolving story. Even if they are lacking or inappropriate or completely fictional at this stage, they help construct what success might look like, and gives you and your team targets to achieve and measure and track.

We will explore these conventions, both useful and silly, and how to create them, and hopefully help you both build your business and raise the capital to keep it growing.

We encourage collective masterminding with each other about the common challenges entrepreneurs face, and the pooling of resources.
