About This Course

If you’re asked to analyze the investment return in a fast-growing startup, your financial modelling methods will need to be altered. In this course, you’ll learn what process to apply to assess this ever-growing analytical space.

Across 16 lessons, you’ll discover why startups differ greatly in their modelling behaviour and how to assess the ROI under your new model, so that your company can feel confident in how its minority stake will behave.

By the end of the course, you’ll understand the steps needed to take in assessing startup investment, how each stake can benefit your company, and what risks are involved in the process.
