Presenters: Geoffrey Hansen, Brent Holliday, Garret LaValley
Did you know that a 10% increase in your revenue growth rate can have over a 50% impact on your valuation? It’s fascinating to learn how targeted changes in performance can greatly influence valuation for both investment and exit.

Valuation metrics are comprehensive measures of a company’s performance, financial health and prospects for future earnings. Based on your stage and sector, there are benchmarks of these valuation metrics that can provide invaluable guidance on your current and future valuation.

Understanding these metrics and these benchmarks help you focus your priorities on the things that can impact your valuation the most leading to less dilution during investment and maximum shareholder value at exit.
