Valuation Workshop

Learn about the importance of negotiating current valuation of seed-stage startups at the time of investment, including detailed demonstrations of multiple valuation methodologies. The expert instructor will provide some additional insight into the impact of COVID-19 on the valuation of startup enterprises, based on the historical data from previous downturns. Attendees will test their skills using a case study company valuation project.

This workshop introduces participants to current trends in valuation and demonstrates three valuation methodologies – the Seraf Method, the Scorecard Method and the Venture Capital Method.  The workshop closes with a 30-minute exercise in which attendees use these valuation methods to appraise a case study company and hone their newly acquired valuation skills.  Ample time is allocated for Q&A.
