Startup Sprints Session 5 – Size Doesn’t Matter, Financial Clarity Does


About This Event

Jeff Bruno, from YOCFO, will highlight some critical metrics for a service or product or SASS business to watch as they look to hit growth milestones. We will also discuss the importance of contribution margin in determining breakeven and correct capital allocation to accelerate growth. All in the effort to develop a customized performance management framework that can be consistently managed, updated or changed to align with the owner’s “why”, goals or simply with an increase in company value!

This will be in mostly a town hall format, so please come prepared with questions around metrics, issues and other thoughts that impede or support your growth aspirations. Think outside of the box!

Some questions to contemplate:

  • If I invest $50K into marketing what should I expect on revenue, GP and NI return?
  • When do I hire key operations people like a COO, Dir of Ops or Business manager?
  • What is the difference of cost of capital as I grow? Should I give up equity or look to support the growth with debt? Does it matter?
  • How do I calculate my cash conversion cycle and improve that as I continue to grow?
  • Are there any considerations around inventory build or asset accumulation for market penetration? Also strategy for year end in consideration with tax liability.
