Do you dream of becoming a dominant player and capturing your total addressable market (TAM)? Who can blame you? But one of the most common mistakes many startup founders make is calculating a TAM that isn’t necessarily accurate or obtainable.

Understanding TAM is essential to startup success, especially in a down market when VC dollars are harder to come by. That’s why we’re excited to have Dayna Grayson, co-founder and general partner at Construct Capital, join us on stage at businessroundups.org Early Stage on April 20 in Boston, Massachusetts.

In a session titled “How to Tell Your TAM,” Grayson will help you understand what TAM is and what it isn’t, and how founders should discuss this vital metric with investors.

If you don’t know your TAM from your serviceable addressable market (SAM) or serviceable avoidable market (SOM) — and even if you do — Grayson will shed light on what you need to know, pitfalls to avoid, and how to get an accurate picture of your TAM.

All TC Early Stage sessions leave plenty of time for Q&A, so take advantage of Grayson’s expertise and ask your questions.
