TOP REVIEWS FROM VALUATION FOR STARTUPS USING MULTIPLE APPROACH
The quizz and exercices have a lot of weird problems. Way of asking the question, approximation of the result, contradictory initial datas... It needs to be reviewed
WOW! A very challenging and interesting course. Easy to read and understand. Also great exercises to practice everything you learned.
The course is great. There seem to be mistakes in the final exam. I'd recommend referring to the week 5 forum to look for help.
Very clear overall at a pace I (non-financial savvy) can accept. But hope to solution to all questions in the future.
About the Valuation and Financial Analysis For Startups Specialization
The Startup Valuation and Financial Analysis Specialization teaches two of the most often used methods to find the value of a startup. You’ll learn how to find the value of founder’s ownership before and after additional funding, how to read financial statements and make pro-forma statements, and how to determine the financial health and status of a startup and estimate future earnings and value. You’ll then use various investment criteria, such as Net Present Value (NPV) and Individual Rate of Return (IRR), to make a decision about whether and where to invest your money.
