Getting Funded: How to calculate your total addressable market and make a great TAM slide for investors

By: Jared Sleeper

Source: For ENTREPRENEURS

I’ve seen hundreds of startup pitch decks in my time at Matrix, and have found total addressable market (TAM) slides to be among the most frequently mis-executed. I get the sense they are often included as a formality in an attempt to get VCs to check a mental box and continue on hearing about other important things: the product, the team, the progress,

Virtually all cyber exposure programs today are directed at addressing the cyber exposures an organization faces from its own resources and activities and from outside sources. This is necessary but not sufficient.

The emergence of ransomware is simple to explain. It can be obtained free or easily made. It has a high success rate and generate

Dear Friends,

You may be aware that the Government of India demonetised the highest two denomination bills of INR1000/- and INR500/- on 8th November 2016. Whilst, the usage of demonetisation as a tool to fight corruption and money laundering is debatable, the Indian case study, as per a Reserve Bank of India memo released on 11th August 2017 mentions that an estimated INR2.8 to INR 4.3 Trillion flowed incrementally (money kept outside the banking system) into the banking system. Circa INR64=1-USD

The Financial Times’ Special Report (2/16/2017) published a four-page spread on the ‘use and possible dangers of artificial intelligence (AI)’. Unlike the usual trash journalists who serve as Washington ’s megaphones on the editorial pages and political columns, the Special Report is a thoughtful essay that raises many important issues, even as it is fundamentally flawed.

As the FRTB implementation race begins, it is crucial that banks now get a thorough understanding of the structure of trading desks, refine operating models and the front office and transform the market risk infrastructure effectively in order to meet the so called ‘FRTB standard’. With less that 18 months to go, banks are under pressure to develop high quality and consistent projects that will minimise the risk of capital charges and ensure integrity across the front office, risk and finance de

God Does Not Exist - Stephen Hawking and my Response

As you will see in the below video, Mr. Hawking asserts that when people ask whether God created the universe, this question does not make sense for him because time did not exist before the Big Bang so according to Mr. Hawking "there is not time for God, therefore there is not time to make the universe in". Mr. Hawking also asserted that we are each free to believe what we want, but his simple explanation is that "there is not God and that no

The Boards of Directors of banks continue to face increasing accountability for ensuring their banks are effectively managing risk. Yet, despite improvements in risk identification, reporting, and strategic risk management initiatives, regulators still question whether banks are truly engaging in the right ways on the top risks that could bring down an individual bank or have a broader systemic impact.

Banks and banking rely on trust; and while it takes years to establish that with the public, it

Ever since the announcement of Basel III banks have been working within a paradigm that pushes towards either TSA or AMA approaches (standardised and advanced approaches respectively). At the end of 2015, however, the Basel Committee shocked firms by announcing that they were doing away with this, and replacing it with the SMA – a new standardized approach that would be the norm for all banks. This is having huge ramificatio

Mahatma Gandhi was asked,

what are the factors that destroy and build a person.

 

He replied:


Politics without principles, 

Pleasure without obligation, 

Wealth without work, 

Wisdom without character, 

Business without morality, 

Science without humanity
and 
Prayer without charity,
Destroy the person.

 

Life has taught me that
people are friendly, if I am kind; 

people are sad, if I’m sad; 

they are all bad, if I hate them;

The Theory of Constraints (TOC) is a methodology for identifying the most important limiting factor—i.e. constraint—and systematically improving it.  It was developed by Dr. Eliyahu Goldratt, introduced in 1984 book, The Goal.
