Startup Sioux Falls’ Definition of Growth

“Growth" is defined as a year-over-year increase in a startup’s revenue, profit, or employee count. 
This can be achieved through strategically expanding the company's operations and impact while enhancing efficiency. It may involve optimizing processes, utilizing technology, refining customer acquisition and retention, seeking funding if needed, and fostering an innovative culture to unlock the startup's full potential and achieve significant milestones.

We will measure growth by:

  • % of revenue growth
  • % of profit growth
  • employee #
