Tech Park Academy: Process Not Product

A great idea is only great if it can be sustainably produced on a mass scale.  The product is only part of the equation, it is the process that matters.  As many have said, “Plans are worthless, planning is everything.”  The ability to pivot, recognize and embrace change and to strategize is what can make or break innovation.

Tech Park Academy | Valuing an Early Stage Company

You’re looking for capital, you’re seeking investors. You have yet to earn any revenue and are in the very early stages of developing your product or service and taking it to market. One of the first questions you are asked is “what is the valuation of your company?”. There are no easy answers! This valuation process is a mix of both art and science where there are no hard and fast answers. Before you spend thousands of dollars on consultants, come learn from a veteran investor how these questions can be answered in a meaningful and defensible manner. You will be better positioned and prepared to offer a valuation of your startup and to understand how a potential investor is arriving at their valuation as well.
