Early-Stage Startup Valuation Workshop: What is Your Startup Worth?
Have you ever wondered what your startup is worth? Do you have someone interested in investing in or even buying your startup? Do you need to grant stock options? If you are an early-stage startup that is looking for help in determining the value of your startup, come to this hands on valuation workshop.
Our speaker will discuss what valuation models to use in the early stages and will run some actual models; Cost Approach, VC Method, Discounted Cash Flow. He will also discuss and model the impact that funding rounds and their various terms and preferences can have on the common stock values.

[Early-Stage = pre-development, pre-alpha, pre-revenue and projections have not yet been built.] If you not an early-stage startup and are a mid-stage startup, that workshop will be held at a later date.**
