 Startup Finance: Valuation


Learn how to value startups in this 2 hour class.

Valuation can make or break a company. As investors, entrepreneurs, employees and consultants it is critical to understand the value of the startups we associate ourselves with.

There are many circumstances in which valuation is critical:

A. You are looking to raise funding for your company.

B. You are looking to invest in a startup.

C. You are looking to work for a startup and your success is tied to the startup’s success.

D. You are about to get paid in equity.

E. You are interested in selling your business.


Valuation is the key component that enables the sales and purchase activity of startups. It is the very component that enabled Insagram’s sale for $1 Billion. 

This class is purely focused on startup valuation with entrepreneurial and non-public valuation needs in mind. We cover concepts such as pre-money, post money valuation and valuation equations used for private companies. We will be looking at Startup Valuation strictly from the financial perspective. You can expect to walk away with a few equations and ideas on how to make financial projections.


This class is ideal for entrepreneurs, investors and anyone interested in working for or with a private company. Attendees to this seminar will walk away with a better understanding of the valuation process.  Attendees can expect to walk through a few financial examples of valuations. The valuation focus is strictly startups.
