Scusa ma Quanto Vali ?

LAB Creative Thinking
“In sostanza quel che vedi è il valore (in termini economici) di una tua condivisione su Facebook.

METRICS for decision making vs vanity metrics

BLOG Marnix Groet
Good metrics are an excellent tool for decision making. They serve the entrepreneur-startupper and the team as well, but are also instrumental to communicate with the stakeholders and generally to the rest of the world. Metrics matter! http://marnixgroet.blogspot.it/2016/09/metrics-for-decision-making.html

STARTUP PRE-SEED STAGE: FINANCING AND ADVISORY

GroetConsulting
There is much talk of startups in Italy and there is a strong push by the new legislation on the innovative startups. (So called “startup innovativa”). There is, however, a still earlier stage than seed, when there is almost nothing but ideas. And where the startup, most of the times, it is not even formed. What we call the Pre-Seed stage. http://www.marnixgroet.com/startup-pre-seed-stage/
