Startup Metrics with Brett Sharp
February 12 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
About this Event
In the early stages of company formation, there tends to be a lack of data for informed decision making. Our speaker Brett Sharp will discuss some simple rules of thumb that may help guide decisions or further analysis to aid in these choices. Join us for an overview of general “rule of thumb” metrics for startup companies.
This event is to provide non-financial startup leaders with key financial concepts, terminology, and tools in order to help facilitate scalable and capital-efficient business growth.
This is an extension of the Startup Finance 101 event (review the video clip here).
Brett has served in leadership positions for high growth technology organizations for much of his career. He is passionate about taking high-growth companies to the next level and excels at building the scalable infrastructure to support high-growth and profitability to maximize value. He has a knack for turning data into actionable plans and executing to drive results.
Brett has served as the Chief Financial Officer for the following high growth technology companies:
- TCC Software Solutions, a $40M custom software development and consultant company with Minority Ownership certification serving government agency clients,
- Enterprise Health, a high-growth software-as-a-service company focused on providing enterprise-class customers with occupational health and safety software solutions,
- CloudOne (now ClearObject), a high growth custom platform-as-a-service company and IoT solutions provider,
- Bluelock (as Director of Finance), an innovative Infrastructure-as-a-Service company which pivoted to a Disaster Recovery services company prior to exiting.
In these roles, he was responsible for leading the Company’s finance, administrative, HR, legal, and risk teams and executing the overall financial strategy, in addition to being a voice of strategic direction.
Today, Brett runs his own strategic and financial consulting firm, b-sharp advisory, where he helps companies maximize value.
