Startup Success Series: Pre-Revenue Startup Valuation

Recording of Startup Success Series: Pre-Revenue Startup Valuation

Investment can be difficult to come by as we continue to adjust and get used to the 'new normal'. Having a strong and accurate pre-revenue value estimate is more important than ever.

A pre-revenue valuation can be more of a negotiation art than science, particularly in the earlier stage of a startup's existence where so much has to be estimated to come to a figure. Founders typically want a high valuation while investors want a low one to increase their potential return on investment, and finding the right estimate between the two is a crucial part of any startup journey.

That's why for this edition of the Startup Success Series, we've invited expert panelists to discuss startup valuation and answer your questions on the topic.
