Significance of Measurable Goals in Engineering Startups

Unfortunately, there is no definite answer. In reality, it all boils down to the availability of resources, management and the business goal of the startup. Can you start a business if you don’t specialize in that industry?

One of the most frequent questions faced by many starting entrepreneurs. There is no such dilemma for the investors, as the money is invested to bring back revenue. As for management and the actual business owner, it is highly unlikely that an individual with no background experience will build a successful business in a niche industry.

Setting a Business’s Target


A business target is preferably a goal that is measurable. Many startups make the mistake of not thinking how they will measure their companies growth or altered potential.

A business target doesn’t have to be creative, unconventional, or revolutionary. For an HVAC company, a business goal could be to capture a 30% market share of the HVAC services in the chosen market over the next three years. This example has measurable factors.

View a business plan as guidelines for company development over a set period of time. It’s a manual that should be referred to, and updated accordingly, to see if the company is on track with set goals, revenue predictions and sales.

The aim of any business enterprise is to gain revenue. However, once a stable revenue flow is established, a company will want to increase the inflow of capital. 

A company can increase revenue through:

  • Physical expansion to new areas, opening at new locations
  • Diversification and expansion of the product or service range
  • Collaboration with other businesses; additional distribution channels
