Startup Budget, Valuation and Dilution
March 25 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
A panel discussion to be held where experienced veterans in the Finance, Tech, and Startup industries.
Find out why you need to get a solid business plan and a proper valuation before going for your funding quest.
Many ideas are great and can attract attention, however, investors like business angels or venture capitalists look also at the team, its members, and the way you present yourself and the idea.
They also need to understand in a nutshell the plan and the prospect of a return on investments as well as what are you going to do with their cash.
The research for funding is becoming a jungle where other “startupers” who do not even compete on the same market compete for the same money.
It is also a time where you will have to give away part of your company and it is always wise to raise at lower dilution as you know that you will have to do it again one or two times.
The startup adventure is a journey and your need your investors to embark on it and help you to create a path of success.
EBITA ratio and DCF valuation are not the only ones and it is important to know some more ways to evaluate your startup.
Benefits for attendees:
Attendees will learn about the thinking within the investor’s mind and what can trigger a yes or a no. They will also have some examples of real-life investments in startups.
We will list the different steps that could help to prepare a plan that will allow founders to document their journey to come
