Event Details

What is your startup worth to you?

Now the tricky question: what is your startup worth to everyone else?

Pricing your company too high may make it unattractive to investors; too low, and you fail to maximize the reward for your time, effort and innovation. On April 1, join us to learn about valuation from Burton M. Goldfield, President & CEO of TriNet, a billion-dollar-revenue company that IPO\’d in March 2014. Burton will explain what investors look for when they put a value on startups. He\’ll also give us a behind-the-scenes look at how TriNet made its most recent acquisitions.


  • How does a startup determine its valuation?
  • How does an early stage investor value a startup?
  • What can a startup do to make itself an attractive target for acquisition?
  • How should a startup identify potential strategic acquirers?
  • What are some guidelines for navigating the negotiation process?

Complimentary beer, wine and hors d\’oeuvres will be served at the networking reception before and after the talk.
