Why does every startup need a mission statement? Whether your business is creating apps or educating migrant workers an effective mission statement will set concrete action goals that will guide you and your employees. Everyone in your organization will be able to use the mission statement to say this is my contribution. A mission statement describes the long term impact you want to make in your industry. Your task as leader is to convert the organization’s mission into specific, measurable steps. A mission statement lays the foundation for your business’s objectives and measurements.
