The unit economics concept is a powerful tool that helps you better understand whether you pursue a viable business model. By deconstructing the unit economics and focusing on improving all underlying variables, you can also steer your business towards high growth readiness. Have the patience to develop strong unit economics. It will eventually pay off and pave the path to sustainable high growth.
As Marc Andreesen once put it: "The only thing that matters is product/market fit". Fuelling the growth engine and entering the high growth phase does not make sense if a company has not yet found product/market fit.
But as product/market fit is not binary the question arises how to measure product/market fit?
Founders may gather and analyse quantitative and qualitative information and need to use their intuition in order to assess whether they can start scaling heavily.
