500Startups: Cohort Metrics For Startups

Today’s VC post of the day is from Dan Martell.  Dan isn’t a VC, but is a super-mentor for 500Startups and is the Co-Founder of Flowtown, But more importantly, he’s written two excellent blog posts on Cohort Metrics. Don’t know what a Cohort Metric is? Shame on you – go take a look at the posts right now.

Many VCs and entrepreneurs care about metrics. But they often care about the wrong ones, or don’t understand the ones they are looking at, or think metrics is the way they measure things in Europe. Dan’s posts are a great introduction to understanding how to think about cohort metrics, which makes your metrics a lot more valuable.
