We often have founders telling us that their business has network effects, but few have quantitative ways to demonstrate that. Here's a few metrics I often use when assessing startups' network effects:
- cohort curves: is activity increasing as the network grows?
- match rate
(often also called success or utilization rate)
- power user curves to see how engagement is evolving over time! See our post: a16z.com/2018/08/06/pow…
Watch our hallway discussion on metrics to measure network effects here with @dcoolican and @withfries2:
