Lunch and Learn: Estimating the Commercial Value of Your Invention
December 2 @ 11:45 am - 1:00 pm
When negotiating with investors to establish a valuation for your startup, the first step is to develop financial projections (pro format financials) that include a forecast of sales, expenses, and profits for the new venture. In this event, attendees will learn about the basics of forecasting and how to negotiate the best valuation and deal terms for your startup based on that forecast.
