TOP REVIEWS FROM STARTUP VALUATION METHODS
This course has helped gain knowledge of the valuation of companies of all sizes, basic funding criteria, and sources for a startup and a view of investors for a company.
Course content is very convenient for beginners.
Instructors presented and taught the syllabus effectively and smoothly that made the course very interesting and useful.
The first part from Manuel amazin. The second one is not clear, and I had to access a lot the forum for specifics doubts that were not clear during the lessons. Need to improve a lot.
Week 3 could be improved, the lecturer was not specific with certain valuation formulas thus creating a lot of confusion. Other than that, great course. Thanks!
