November 9, 2015 | 2:00 pm - 6:00 pmFree
Start-up valuation is more art than science. Since start-ups take time to become profi-table and most of the time no numbers can yet be taken as basis, start-up valuation is particularly challenging for founders. However, entrepreneurs need to put a value on their start-ups in order to raise money, and investors need to put a value on their in-vestments to generate liquidity. So if your start-up is to become a masterpiece, the im-portant piece of the puzzle “early stage valuation” must not be missed. In this talk you will learn about methods that help to demystify the world of start-up eval-uation to determine the value of your start-up with hands on techniques and guidelines for early stage valuation
