Set the Best Valuation for Future Success
February 18 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm
WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THIS WORKSHOP?
Employing a reality-based framework when it comes to valuation is vital. Lofty valuations can limit exit opportunities, increase the likelihood of future down rounds, and leave founders with less bargaining power over board composition, liquidation preferences, and veto rights. The purpose of this workshop is to educate founders on how to set realistic valuations that will enable their companies to exceed expectations now and into the future.
