It's commonly said that business valuation is more art than science. If this is true, then the practice of valuing a startup business is squarely in the domain of the artist.

Nevertheless, entrepreneurs need to put a value on their startups in order to raise money, and investors need to put a value on their investments to generate liquidity. Since neither entrepreneurs nor investors are known for right-brain artistic thinking, this session aims to provide some tips for left-brain thinkers to make sense of startup valuation.

Headstart brings to you an insightful eventon how to value your startup and myths about fund raising. Come and make the most from this month's speakers, who will share with you a few crucial experiences and some useful information!
