With a renewed focus on the future, we can look forward to the promise of greater workplace flexibility and innovation in remote collaboration. Against this background, we want to celebrate the businesses that innovate, sculpt our future and address some of the world’s greatest challenges head-on: start-ups and early-stage companies.
Start-up founders, entrepreneurs, venture capitalists and state-owned agencies bolstering young businesses are forging the world of tomorrow through innovative products, services and solutions. Their efforts advance our quality of life and make the world a better place. That’s why we’re focusing on early-stage companies in this edition of our insight, where we explore the many ways, they give us hope for a brighter future.
"Volatile capital markets – agitated by crisis-related corrections – also affect transactions involving early-stage companies. Alongside general market risks, start-up-specific risks should be considered in any early-stage company valuation. Failing to appreciate a start-up’s specific risk profile can lead to an inaccurate assessment of its full value potential in an exit scenario unless there is sufficient transparency of existing risks and opportunities to promote robust price negotiations.
