Go behind the scenes of successful exits of SaaS businesses with David Newell, a leading expert in SaaS valuation and acquisitions.
In this talk we'll look at what makes a SaaS business valuable, the key metrics and levers which both increase or decrease a SaaS business's value, and how you can estimate the value of your business today. We'll review actual acquisitions and uncover the principles that make one business more valuable than another.
Here's what we'll cover
The four pillars of value. There are 4 key factors that influence the value of every e-commerce business. Learn what these are and review your business. How to calculate the value of your business today. By the end you'll be able to estimate your business's current value as well as what it could be worth 1, 2, or 3 years from now. The #1 mistake entrepreneurs make that destroys the value of even the best businesses. This is 100% under your control, but if you don't pay attention to this, your business could be unsellable. Why building a valuable business matters - even if you never sell. Don't want to sell your business? That's fine. You should still build something valuable. I'll explain why.
Don't miss this opportunity to learn what you need to do to set yourself up for a possible exit of six, seven, or even eight figures.
Traditionally, you could either choose to bootstrap your business, or get on the VC track. What if you could get just enough money to get you to the next level, while keeping control of your business and your growth? This talk will go over the options available for you and the pros and cons of each.
