Course Description

To evaluate an investment opportunity, savvy investors rely on a company’s records of its ownership percentages, equity dilution, and the value of equity issued in each round of financing. These records are kept in a company’s capitalization table, or cap table, which is a record of the different rounds of investment.

In this course, you will utilize and complete a cap table template to create and record a sample startup’s financial records. Then, you will use the cap table to assess and analyze a series of financial outcomes based on a set of differing scenarios. Lastly, you will compute and evaluate approaches to valuation such as discounted cash flow and public market multiples based on estimates of future cash flow. This will position you to negotiate new rounds of financing and analyze the impact of new rounds on existing shareholders.

You are required to have completed the following courses or have equivalent experience before taking this course:

  • Startup Viability and Funding Options
  • Pitching Your Business Opportunity
  • Protecting Your Interests
