Event Details

What is your startup worth to you?

Now the tricky question: what is your startup worth to everyone else?

Join the entrepreneurial and tech community for an interactive dialogue focused on building successful businesses, raising capital, and everyone's favorite topic - valuing your business.


Burton Goldfield, President & CEO of TriNet, a billion dollar revenue company that IPO'd in March 2014, will talk about what investors look for when determining valuation.  He will also give you a behind-the-scenes look at TriNet's most recent acquisitions.


The discussion, which will be moderated by Richard Foster, President and Co-Founder of LaunchPad Mineola, will address some of the questions below:

  • How does a startup determine its valuation?
  • How does an early stage investor value a startup?
  • What can a startup do to make itself an attractive target for acquisition?
  • How should a startup identify potential strategic acquirers?
  • What are some guidelines for navigating the negotiation process?


After the talk, companies Teedot, Sweigh and FlightPartner will pitch a panel of investors from the Long Island Angel Network and New York Angels, Shark Tank Style.  Continue the conversation with your peers and enjoy some complimentary beer, wine and hors d'oeuvres at the demo and networking reception.
