How does the growth of your startup compare with Facebook?

startup_facebookThis is a little silly, but might be an app worth looking at if there are companies out there who want to measure the growth of their startup against behemoths such as Facebook, eBay and Match.com

The My Startup Story app has been developed by ‘insurance specialists’ Jelf Small Business that allows companies to compare and graph their employee and revenue growth, which can then be shared to other social channels such as Twitter.

“When you start a business, it can be tricky to know exactly how you’re doing. One of the best ways to gauge your growth is to compare your achievements against those of well-known brands. It doesn’t matter whether your startup is little or large, everyone can get involved,” said Rob Rees, Managing Director at Jelf Small Business.

Maybe so or maybe not, but it certainly beats searching for your company’s mentions on Google.
