The aim of this e-book: a new perspective to failure
The aim of this e-book is to offer the founders of startups/scaleups a new perspective where failure would not be inevitable.
The digital transformation imposes a strategic change in companies and the COVID-19 crisis is accelerating this process. A Start-up, created from an innovation, is characterised by hyper-growth and uncertainty of the business model while favouring financing through fund raising.
The challenge is to determine the valuation of a high-potential start-up, whether for an investor or for an entrepreneur running the marathon of a fund raising. Major groups and public authorities, the pillars of the start-up ecosystem, have defined an environment in which the venture capital investor or VC formats the intellectual property of startups/scaleups with a view to increasing the financial value of these startups.
Valuation is a key issue in the negotiation between VCs and startups/scaleups. Indeed, the amount determines the number of shares in exchange for a capital investment by the investor. The objective is to increase the valuation of the start-up and if possible in the context of an IPO.
