NextStep Workshops

start up growth potential

Valuation is an important factor in both investment and acquisition.

For entrepreneurs, knowing the value of your startup can determine its success. Knowing how to sell the value of your idea to investors can either sustain or halt your project. For investors, knowing which factors to look at can help you decide which start-ups to support. It helps you see the potential value of a start-up project

But how does one identify the factors that make your startup valuable? How do you make the best buck for your business?

NextStep Workshops is partnering with Early Metrics and French Tech Shanghai to give you pointers on how to evaluate a start-ups growth potential. This event will be headed by Early Metric’s Founder, Sebastien Paillet.
