About This Class

Around 90% of startups are unsuccessful.  Can you be an exception? Can you be amongst the 10% of successful startups?  Yes, you can. We will teach you how by applying Management Skills to increase the chances of success of your start-up.  

The course initially focuses upon guaranteeing that startups have the correct products and services to be offered to the market, thereby avoiding market adaptation problems. 

Once products or services have been correctly adjusted to clients’ needs and requirements, efficient sales techniques for the re-defined products or services are taught, so as to guarantee the flow of revenue. 

Once the startup reaches a correct level of invoicing, the key financial indicators of the business must be controlled. To do so, we explain how to measure and carry out a financial performance follow-up using Performance Management techniques. 

Finally, once we have the correct product or service being sold and generating profit, we explain how to efficiently manage the cash flow and costs to avoid running out of money. 

For a successful Startup, you need Strategy and Execution. During this course, we will specifically explain the following Management Skills:

  • Management Skill #3: Performance Management to improve company yield, with special emphasis upon the key financial indicators, including key performance indicators and other KPI’s such as the CAC and LTV.
