The Capital Network Evening Roundtable: Negotiation and Valuation
Entrepreneurs have always struggled to develop and defend early stage corporate valuations as they seek to raise equity financing. In today’s economic environment, where investors are strapped for cash and looking for the lowest risk alternatives, the already difficult task of defending your corporate valuation is nearly impossible. In this new financial world, how do entrepreneurs and investors ever arrive at common ground? To help answer this question a case study of a recent successful financing is examined to test your valuation abilities and acumen in real time. This year the case study will be focused on Steve Papa of Endeca. Speakers include: Steve Papa, Endeca; Bard Salmon, Perillon Software; Ryan Moore, Atlas Ventures and Mike Conza, Bingham McCutchen. Following the panel there will be a networking reception.
