In this class you will learn how to model eight business models for early-stage product startups. We will discuss which assumptions are needed for each business model, how to determine values for those assumptions and how to translate your launch strategy into a financial forecast. The channels covered are e-commerce, brick and mortar, events, sales reps, international and domestic distributors, big box retailers, and joint ventures.

October 29, 6:00pm - 8:00pm Class 4A: A Case Study: Modeling and Valuing an Early-Stage Product Startup.
