How are valuations of early stage venture-backed companies determined? Is there a difference between theory and practice? Does the purpose for which the valuation is being made make a difference in the valuation approach? Does valuation affect other deal terms? What is the difference between pre-money valuation and post-money valuation? Is obtaining the highest pre-money valuation always in the best interests of the existing investors?

If you have ever wondered about these and similar questions, be sure to join us for the next T3 program, on Tuesday, April 5th. Joel Johnson, a well-known valuation expert, will address these topics, among others. Following Joel’s presentation there will be a Q&A session to address any additional questions you may have.
