In this presentation I cover how to measure success for a start up in a global market (read: the Internet). I tried my best to give an overview of some of the common pitfalls that startup companies seem to face as well as some possible solutions that have worked for me in my career. I tried to have a little fun too.
I’m happy to announce that I’ll be speaking at LessConf in Jacksonville, Fla. on October 17th. The title for my talk is still tentative but the main subject will be about how startups should measure success.
I have a lot to say about how startups measure success in a global market like the Internet. Too many times I’ve seen startups that try to compare themselves to companies much larger than themselves because they are building similar products. The Internet has shrunk the world to such a degree that unfair comparisons are drawn every day. I will be ranting about that and how I think that start ups should focus on themselves rather than the rest of the world when they are measuring the success of their products and business. I’m really looking forward to this opportunity and I hope that everyone in attendance is interested in this too.
Although the above is true I was really sucked into taking the opportunity to speak at LessConf because the Web site for the event sports random Star Wars characters and Thor on a chariot with an electric guitar. I mean, dude.
Thanks to the generosity of Allan and Steve I’ll be giving away two tickets to the event on my blog next week so if you’re interested in going to LessConf stay tuned for that giveaway. (It will have to do with video.)
