How to Value a Startup
Whether you want to invest in a startup, or you are a startup looking to raise capital, valuation is often one of the hardest things to work out. It isn't straightforward, and there isn't a black and white answer as to what is the right number.
For a startup business, many people think that valuation is just an art, but in reality, there is a reasonable amount of science involved as well (if done properly).
