Negotiating the Pre-Money Valuation
A crucial question in the investor's evaluation and decision making process is the Pre-Money Valuation, or the value of the company at the time a new investment is made.
All too often, the CEO and CFO stumble at this point with vague and uninformed responses demonstrating a lack of knowledge of an investor's perspective, quantification of risk as well as market conditions/valuations for companies in a similar sector and stage of development.
This session will address the valuation methodology, Pre-Money and Post Money Capitalization (Cap) tables, investor preferences such as liquidation preferences; trade offs in negotiating the Pre-Money valuation and scenarios for managing investor expectations.
This event is a collegial luncheon designed to foster discussion in a confidential format among founders, officers and managers (CEO, CFO, CTO, CMO) of startup technology companies. We request that participants be involved in the management of a technology company.
Advance registration only, limited to 25 registrants, no walk-ins admitted.
PRE-REGISTERED RATES (All Rates Include Lunch):
$20 SVASE members, $29 Affiliates who promote this event, $49 Non-members
