🚀 Peoplebox - OKR & performance platform for hypergrowth companies

A single dashboard to track all strategic goals, initiatives and red-flags, in real-time

TL;DR: Peoplebox solves the biggest problems of scaling companies - Misaligned teams and Poor Execution Speed. We do this by integrating with all your work tools, bringing every cross-aligned goal in one single dashboard to identify red flags on time.

Howdy, Everyone!

We are @Abhinav Chugh and @Alagu M, founders of Peoplebox, an OKR platform that makes it easy for growing companies to align their teams and execute faster.

It serves as a source of truth for all your strategic goals and initiatives to align your teams and identify red flags early without the friction of new software.

We are currently helping many YC companies, including Razorpay (W15), Khatabook (S18), StayQrious (W20) achieve faster business results.

❌ The Problem

As companies grow, they find it difficult to execute their strategy with the same speed as before due to misalignment and lack of cross-functional visibility. OKRs solve this problem, but they are hard to implement.

In fact, 7 out of 10 OKRs implementations fail, and no 1 reason is: Set and Forget.

Today,

  • OKRs are written in spreadsheets
  • Metrics are tracked in BI tools
  • But MBRs (Monthly Business Reviews)/ QBRs are done in Powerpoints.

✨ What makes Peoplebox different?

Peoplebox integrates with all your work tools (SQL, Jira, Hubspot, Asana, Slack etc) to make real-time goal tracking and business reviews magically easy.

It aligns and tracks all your strategic priorities, goals & initiatives in one place. This help identifies red flags early and makes timely corrections.

In addition, your business reviews are structured and super effective, ensuring that

  1. It happens on the same place where OKRs are set so you never miss talking about it.
  2. Plug data, narratives, screenshots and media easily.
  3. Can run structured reviews through templates, notes, and action items
  4. Takes a few hours instead of days to prepare for reviews because of automated updates of goals and initiatives

It is also deeply integrated with Slack to make it super easy for teams to update OKRs progress and tag people to start a conversation and fix the issues instead of waiting for review meetings.

In addition, Peoplebox also lets you

  • Run your performance reviews cycle entirely only Slack
  • Do effective and actionable 1:1s to build high-performing teams
  • Run automated pulse and engagement surveys to be on top of your culture

Who are we, and why are we building this?

We are techies turned product guys, having built our first startups in Dublin, Ireland, and SF (YC S12) respectively. We joined Practo, one of Asia’s largest health-tech startups, when it had 250 employees and saw it grow to 3,000 in just a couple of years.

We witnessed the challenges of hypergrowth companies first-hand. We realized as companies grow, the problems of misalignment and lack of cross-functional visibility only becomes larger, resulting in poor execution speed, missed goals, high talent turnover, and sometimes death.

Our vision at Peoplebox is to become the Operating System for strategy execution to help companies align and achieve moonshot goals.
