Why a book on Valuation?
One of the biggest decisions an entrepreneur needs to make is accepting an investment from an Angel investor or Venture Capitalist or selling their company to an acquirer. Ultimately this decision will be dependent on the valuation of the deal and that's where the problem lies.
The biggest cause of failure in Angel Investment and Venture Capital deal closure or an Acquisition is disagreements on valuation. The primary reason for this failure is the lack of understanding by entrepreneurs and some angels on how to value the business.
This book aims to close the gap in valuation negotiations between entrepreneurs and investors, by helping both parties understand the key elements and methods of valuation. The ultimate objective is to reduce the number of deals that fail because both parties cannot agree on a valuation.

Whether you’re a startup entrepreneur wanting to determine the true value of your company, or an investor keen to set an acceptable valuation for a deal, this is an ideal book for you.
