There have been many instances in my personal and professional life that a rule of thumb was simply all I needed, but couldn’t find any. I have begun to contribute all of the rules of thumb that I have used in my career, thus the content is dominated by business topics in general and venture capital and valuation rules of thumb in particular. Therefore, I hope you will help me build this collection of Rules of Thumbs from which everyone can benefit.
This is meant to be a collaborative environment to create a useful and valuable repository of rules of thumb, “back of the envelope” estimations, and Super Wild Assumptions and Guesses (SWAGs).
To add your own rule of thumb or edit an existing rule, please leave it in the comments field.
Thank you for your help in making this endeavor useful for all. Enjoy!
