Today on StartupSmart, we look at the most important target for small businesses to hit.

It’s not profit. It’s not even sales, although this is undeniably the lifeblood of your venture. The highest priority target to hit is business value.

As business advisor Marc Peskett explains today, increasing the value of your business is the best way to create a sustainable and scalable entity. Read his top five tips to find out how you do it.

Elsewhere, we wrap up the Tech23 winners, we profile The Video Network, a promising new venture in a cutting edge industry, and mentor Gillian Franklin has some advice on how much time you should spend selling.

Finally, with StartupSmart’s one-year anniversary looming next week, we were pleased to see our content cited by climate change minister Greg Combet in a recent speech.

Bruce Billson, the shadow small business minister, has also previously provided a hat tip to us. Glad to see you’re reading, gents.
