Valuation is both art and science. The science is the easy part — researching valuations for comparable companies and constructing a revenue or EBITDA multiple. The art is more subjective. How strong is the team? How probable are the leads in the pipeline? How innovative is the technology?” – Lili Balfour.



The purpose of this learning challenge is

  • to conduct an online search on the factors that will maximise the potential investment value of your business idea, and
