Know how much you're worth: be operationally & financially healthy to raise more funding

Only 2% of the entrepreneurs have an idea of their business value. Do you know the value of your startup or SME? If you haven’t (recently) done a valuation, register now and find out why it is so relevant to the future growth of your business, your further investments and exit strategies.

The Startup & SME Academy’s fifth event is all about being financially and operationally healthy as a startup of SME. You may benefit from this event by learning:

  • Your business’s value, based on a valuation report (worth S$ 450)
  • Important aspects for funding your company
  • What investors are looking for when they take a closer look at your financial and operational position
