IP Valuation for Fundraising, Data Center & Predictive Analytics Startup
Valuation of a portfolio of patents and developed software relating to data center technology and predictive analytic software to improve data center management. The valuation was conducted in conjunction with the issuance of a convertible note that the company was using to fund the development of a proof-of-concept data center. Foresight’s valuation opinion enabled our Client to leverage the value of their IP Assets as collateral against the note.
Financial Modeling, Consumer Insights SaaS Startup
Constructed a financial model for a consumer insights SaaS business in preparation for Series A funding. The model included a full SaaS metrics dashboard, containing user economics, people metrics and other KPIs over a 5-year projection period. A scenario analysis was performed to help the founder understand the various valuation and equity dilution possibilities under different growth trajectories. The financial model was presented to high profile Silicon Valley investors, and was ultimately a key factor in the closing of a financing round.
Financial Model Stress Test, Corporate Venture Fund
Assisted the corporate venture arm of a global athletic apparel company in making an investment decision in a potential software startup. Performed Stress Test on financial model provided by the startup, using industry-specific benchmarks, and highlighted several shortcomings in the company’s projections, including the underestimation of expenses and headcount required to achieve projected level of growth. Provided Client with insights on flaws in the financial model and how they could be corrected.
|In short I talked to three somewhat similar services and you guys are by far the closest to my liking and also much more in tune with both the funding needs of a start-up and the realistic projections required to not only build a strong and achievable business model but also present a story that makes sense to external professional investors.Founder, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence Startup
