Voodoo Art Of Valuation course is a part of the educational program for investment professionals. However, we highly recommend this course for entrepreneurs too to understand how investors could value their companies. Being on close terms with valuations will help you negotiate your next deal much easier.
Why "voodoo"? Because some startup valuations today can't be anything but magic, while an ability to determine and manipulate them has become an art.
Value means the worth of a thing, and valuation means an estimate of its worth. Once you feel this difference at your fingertips, the actual math of evaluating ventures will get easier.
The main purpose of this course is to explain in plain words the principles and methods of determining startup value and valuation.
Venture Capital Academy is the first comprehensive education program on-line, and we use all possible tools for interaction. Please, use these opportunities to enrich your knowledge without leaving your work place!
After every lecture you can leave comments - please, ask all your questions right there, so all students could be involved. We'll be happy to answer your questions, as well as provide an additional information requested.
