How many people is the right amount to launch a community?
I am in a debate. We are building an online community for young leaders. A main part of the value prop of the community is to find "diverse minded, but like valued peers" to discuss leadership challenges. So to deliver that, we need members from different areas of the glove and industries. However, we also need to find members with the values we are looking for (purpose-drive, growth mindset, low ego).
My boss wants to start 5,000-10,000 on day one. I was thinking start much smaller (200), and grow from there. Trying to build momentum from an engaged group.
Anyone with any experiences they can share on the right size of community on day one?
