Early Stage Valuation of Startups
How can you define the valuation of your startup if you haven’t created any revenues and your product is not in the market yet?
Identifying a fair valuation is a challenge for founders of startups that don’t have a financial track record.
In this webinar, BV4, a certified startup valuation company, and Swiss Startup Capital, an early-stage VC investor,
explain how they identify the value of a company in an early stage based on the real case study of the startup Lokavor.
