Financial Physical Intellectual Human KEY RESOURCES

Financial Equity Friends Family Angel VC – growth Social impact investing Equity Crowdfunding Convertible Debt Debt that converts to equity Debt Small business loans Trade finance Working capital debt Line of credit Non dilutive grants SBIR, STPR grants Open Innovation prizes (XPRIZE, Kaggle) Social impact foundations (RWJF) Project Crowdfunding KEY RESOURCES: FINANCIAL



OPEN INNOVATION– PRIZES AND PULL MECHANISMS Public open innovation – Federal agencies encouraged to call innovators to a challenge, look for the brightest minds and the best ideas, seek a diversity of solutions, and incentivize those solutions with the highest performing outcomes. Private sector open innovation – Companies are recognizing the complexity of business and that the best ideas lie outside their organization. Prizes and open innovation exercises are proliferating in all sectors. Often these are non-dlllutive, but beware those programs that are for marketing/branding reasons, or where there is IP or first right of refusal claims in the terms. NGO open innovation – Foundations and philanthropic organizations are growing faster than for profits, and to incentivize the freshest ideas and solutions, “pull mechanisms” are used to bring forward the best ideas, and reward those that demonstrate the strongest outcome.

Office building/office Factory/processing Vehicles Machines Hardware Raw materials/ingredients Components KEY RESOURCES: PHYSICAL


Co-founders Employees Contractors Development firms, contract manufacturing HUMANS – COMPANY

Mentors – make you smarter about your career Teachers – provide specific subject matter expertise Coaches – help you achieve a goal Advisors – help you make your company succeed Board members – help the investors succeed Surround yourself with people that give critical feedback, and help you through a major founder failure point – when you believe your vision is fact. HUMANS – MENTORS, ADVISORS

Developer/engineer Designer Marketer Scientist Community manager When do you need a CEO? A CFO? An HR person? A VP of Sales? A Chief Revenue officer? TALENT

Income statement Balance sheet Cash flow Are these the financials you need to understand? Yes, because it’s the language investors speak, and it’s good to understand the flows of financial reporting –but this is a system used to compare financial performance for investors. These do not supply execution metrics to help you make decisions and formulate/test hypotheses. COSTS


Viral coefficient CAC LTV Conversion rate Retention rate What are vanity metrics? Registered users, downloads, and raw pageviews. A mobile apps could have millions of downloads but only a few hundred thousand active users, or a freemium website might see exploding traffic growth but barely any conversions to paying users. They are metrics that make you feel good, bad for guiding execution. What metrics will drive you through MVP? COSTS – EXECUTION METRICS




. POST BREAK PREP: We’ve toured the canvas. But you’re not done. For March 24: Prepare to run through the canvas: • What is your clear value proposition, how have you validated. • What segment(s) are you pursuing, how have you validated. • What resources will you need to get to MVP, and what are the costs? • What other key elements of the business model canvas do you need to test. • What remaining hypotheses do you have? We are here for you, all of the mentors and advisors. Please reach out even if you don’t think you need help.
