Pirate dashboard

  1. 1. The issue for investors.. To know when to stop backing a startup or double down The lack of clear data from startups erodes trust Investors haven‟t got the time to be chasing startups for updates They require better Transparency into their investments
  2. 2. “Wayra Ireland is now using Pirate Dashboard to drive quantitative, metric driven reporting with our investment portfolio, enabling us to better manage and drive accelerated growth and net book value.” - Karl Aherne, Director Wayra Ireland
  3. 3. The problem with startups… If startups were focusing on the right things, they would be more successful! • Customers • Revenue Investors tell them that they are most interested in seeing • User growth • Revenue But during customer development we learned • 20% of them gather NO metrics • 60% put little (or merely some) importance on collecting them You can‟t show what you don‟t measure!
  4. 4. The problem with startups… So what are the reasons a startup give for not collecting metrics? • Hard to implement – what should I measure and with which tools? • Time consuming to do regularly • Not a priority The reality is that they are afraid to learn the truth! • Maybe they haven’t got a business • They have no customers • They need to pivot Metrics make for Honest startups! • Give them nowhere to hide • Provide real focus
  5. 5. “Pirate dashboard will make Eventmama incredibly more efficient in how we gather and report on what's going on in our startup. Reporting they offer will not only save us manually gathering and analysing data - but the real-time insights into our business will allow us to act and iterate much faster.” - Louise Caldwell, CEO EventMama
  6. 6. Our Goal is… To be the standard in communications between startups and investors! Startups need to be HONEST with themselves. Dave McClure‟s Pirate Metrics framework is used to keep a startup focused on customers and revenue from the start. • Acquisition, Activation, Retention, Revenue and Referral Investors require TRANSPARENCY By using data from 3rd party tools that the startup uses, trust can be built. The more data, the clearer the view. Display an up to date investor dashboard We like to call it “The Trust Equation”
  7. 7. The Trust Equation Honesty Transparency Investor Startup Investment & Support Trust
  8. 8. The Pirate Dashboard 1. What type of startup are you? 4. You can manually input data 2. Your startups Pirate Metrics at a glance 5. Create a story around your data with the newsfeed 3. Easily setup custom metrics with data from 3rd party tools 6. Share dashboards with investors
  9. 9. What makes us different? Layer Approach • We sit on top of a startups’ existing tools • They can continue to use their marketing, sales and engineering tools in their day to day and use Pirate Dashboard to get a 360º view of their business Singular Focus • We provide a rigid framework focused on the Pirate Metrics • There are many things a startup can measure but we focus them on what they should measure! Fit for purpose • NOT a financial planning tool • Designed to be used on a daily basis for decision making! • Building a tool that we ourselves use to get customers and investors
  10. 10. Product Roadmap Our development philosophy Features come from two sources: customer requests and our own hypotheses. Customers are able to suggest and “up-vote” which 3rd party tools or features they want us to develop. All features requested are validated through user testing. This has led to a dynamic roadmap based on our customers’ needs.
