Startups are notoriously hard to evaluate, since all of the value lies in the future
cashflows or exit potential. Are there any tools or methods to help us evaluate the
value of a given startup? We will go through main valuation methods, and try to
evaluate a startup on a practical example, with provided excel templates.
Exit from the investment is the last step of the investor in an individual investment, so
how important are the most important steps of the exit process? What is a typical
time frame? Large differences in exits are reflected in the sale to a financial or
strategic investor and in the role of the angel investor in the exit. We will look at the
specifics of companies // transactions in Central and Eastern Europe (and the
problems that investors have in doing so). We will cover everything in case studies to
show a better understanding of the sales process.
When investing, it is also important to understand the tax aspect of starting a
business. What matters is how we invest in the company and what the tax aspects of
financing are. To be able to do this in a quality way, it is good to know the tax system
in Slovenia, which is strongly connected with the business operations of companies.
When leaving companies, we will touch on various forms of exits from the tax point of
view, namely: sale, liquidation or closure under an abbreviated procedure, which are
significantly related to the taxation of capital gains.
