Event Details



We regret to inform you that we will have to postpone the Valuations for Start-ups event which was due to be held on Saturday Oct 06 at IIMB Audi.


Several Kannada organisations, under the banner of “Kannada Okkoota”, have called a Karnataka bandh on October 6 in protest against the Prime Minister’s directive to the State to release 9,000 cusecs of water every day to Tamil Nadu. As this is very sensitive issue, in the wake of this we thought it is prudent to postpone “Valuations For Start-ups” event.


We apologize for this inconvenience but we are sure that you understand that your safety is of utmost importance and concern for us. We regret the inconvenience caused and hope you support us in this decision; we will revert to you on the revised dates for it soon. 


We will be back. Stay tuned!

ForStartups is an initiative of NSRCEL@IIMB


Entrepreneurs need to put a value on their start-ups in order to raise money, and investors need to put a value on their investments to ensure an adequate return on investment. No negotiating item between entrepreneur and investor creates a wider gulf than this one. The two parties may agree on every other point but will have diametrically opposing views on what the start-up is worth and how much equity the investor should receive in exchange for his capital.

Valuation is challenging for a start-up. Since young businesses take time to become profitable, the trick of valuing start-ups is to focus on the future. If you want your start-up to be a masterpiece, you'll need to use the right side of your brain as much as your left to determine value.

Is business valuation art or science? Is it possible to place a credible valuation on a Start-up? What is Pre-money valuation? What is Post-money valuation? How much your company worth? Are you really worth anything until you're profitable? How to value your start-up for a VC? What are the Start-up valuation methods?

Do drop in to get insights into Art/Science of valuation of Start-ups from an interesting line-up of speakers, who have been there, done that in terms both raising capital or funding the start-ups.
