The presentation ‘How to Value a Startup’ was presented by Neil Portus, freelance CFO & Advisor for growth companies at Tailored Partners and a former Vice President & Equity Analyst at Goldman Sachs, during Autonomy & the Urban Mobility Summit 2018. The presentation is designed to give you a comprehensive overview of how to approach the valuation of emerging startups and is built around the following four-question framework:
1) What are comparable companies worth?
2) What is the investor’s target return?
3) How viable is the customer acquisition strategy?
4) Are expectations set too high?
