ROI (Return On Investment) **indicates the profitability of an investment in relation to the cost of the investment.** It is used to measure the financial return on an investment, either in terms of profit or loss. ROI is expressed as a percentage and is calculated by dividing the return on investment by the cost of the investment, and multiplying by 100 to obtain the percentage.

**The ROI formula is**

ROI = (return on investment / investment cost) x 100

ROI is commonly used to assess the profitability of a particular company or project. It is also used to compare the performance of different investments and to make informed investment decisions. A positive ROI indicates that an investment has been profitable, while a negative ROI indicates that the investment has resulted in a loss.

**ROI Return On Investment in a new company**

In a new venture, ROI is used to evaluate the profitability of an investment in advertising, a new product or an expansion project. To calculate ROI,** the profit obtained is divided by the cost of the investment and expressed as a percentage.** A positive ROI indicates that the investment generated a profit, while a negative ROI indicates that the investment was not profitable and money was lost. **Therefore, it is important for start-ups to closely monitor their ROI and make adjustments to their investment strategy to maximise their profits and minimise their losses.**

**Calculation of the roi in an expanding project**

To calculate the ROI (Return on Investment) for an expansion project, both the revenues and expenses associated with the expansion must be taken into account.

**The steps for calculating the ROI are presented below:**

- Calculate the total investment made in the expansion project, including costs associated with investment in fixed assets, human resources, advertising, market research, among others.
- Calculate the revenue generated by the expansion project over a specified period of time, such as one year.
- Subtract the costs associated with the expansion project from the revenues generated by the project to obtain the net profit.
- Divide the net profit obtained by the total investment made and multiply the result by 100 to obtain the percentage return on investment.

For example, if $100,000 was invested in an expansion project and revenues of $150,000 were generated in the first year, and expenses associated with the project were $50,000, the net benefit would be $100,000. The ROI would then be 100% ((100,000/100,000) x 100). **It is important to note that the calculation of ROI should be considered along with other financial indicators to make informed decisions on the feasibility and success of an expansion project.**

**Practical examples of roi in start-ups**

**Here are some practical examples of ROI in start-ups:**

- A startup that invests $100,000 in a new product and generates $200,000 in revenue in the first year will have an ROI of 100%.
- A company that invests $50,000 in a marketing campaign and achieves an increase in sales of $100,000 will have an ROI of 100%.
- A company that invests $1 million in an expansion project and manages to generate an additional $1.5 million in revenue the following year will have an ROI of 50%.
- A startup that invests $500,000 in a development team and manages to generate $750,000 in revenue in the first year will have an ROI of 50%.

**Calculation of RoI in an internationalising company**

The calculation of ROI for a company going international is similar to that of any other investment project. The costs and benefits associated with internationalisation must be considered, including the costs of entering a new market, the costs of marketing and advertising in that market, the costs of adapting products or services for that market, the costs of hiring and training personnel, among others. **Benefits can include increased sales in the international market, reduced costs due to economies of scale, increased profitability, increased brand value and the creation of new business opportunities.**

**The formula for calculating ROI is:**

ROI = (Net Return on Investment / Cost of Investment) x 100%

Where the net gain from the investment is equal to the income from the investment minus the costs associated with the investment. It is important to remember that ROI must be considered along with other factors, such as risk and profitability, when making a decision about investing in the internationalisation of a company.

**Calculation of roi in advertising campaigns**

The calculation of ROI (Return on Investment) in advertising campaigns is done to measure the return on the investment made in such campaigns. ROI is expressed as a percentage and is calculated by dividing the profit obtained by the investment made in the campaign, and then multiplying it by 100.

**The formula is as follows:**

ROI = (profit - investment) / investment x 100

For example, if you invest 1000 euros in an advertising campaign and obtain 3000 euros in sales, the calculation would be as follows:

ROI = (3000 - 1000) / 1000 x 100 = 200%

This means that the advertising campaign generated a 200% return on the initial investment. In general, an advertising campaign is considered profitable if its ROI is greater than 100%.

**Relationship between roi and payback period for an investment (see+ TIP)**

ROI (Return on Investment) and the payback period of an investment **are related because both indicators measure the profitability of an investment, but from different perspectives.** The **ROI measures the profitability of an investment in percentage terms, comparing the benefit obtained with the cost of the investment. **That is, it shows how much is earned for each monetary unit invested. For example, if an investment of $1,000 generates a profit of $1,500, the ROI would be 50%. On the other hand, **the payback period of an investment measures the time it takes to recover the cost of the investment.** For example, if an investment of $1,000 generates a return of $100 per month, the payback period would be 10 months.

Both indicators are important for assessing the profitability of an investment. ROI is useful for comparing different investments and deciding which is the most profitable in percentage terms. Payback period is useful to assess the liquidity of the investment and how long it will take to recover the initial investment. In general, **an investment is considered to be profitable when its ROI is higher than its minimum desired rate of return and when its payback period is reasonable compared to the expected time horizon of the investment.**

It is very useful for assessing profitability, as it allows us to know **how much each euro invested in a campaign has generated in sales.**
