The lecture focused on different ways a founder team can value their startup prior to revenue and money. As well as valuation methods, the presentation covered term sheets and methods of managing the long-term relationship, governance and equity distribution between founders, staff, and investors in multiple funding rounds.
In addition to the lecture, Philip Ammerman and Orestis Votsis held one-to-one meetings with eight start-ups and advised them on any issues relating to their ideas and current status.
