Startup Valuation or Innovation Management?
5.30 pm – 7.00 p.m.

Dr. Maximilian Schreiter
Professorship in M&A of Small- and Midsized Enterprises

Although (or just because of) valuing a startup is highly speculative and subject to great uncertainty, we observe an exponentially increasing number of so-called “unicorns” (startups valued at >$ 1 bn). My virtual lecture paves a wide gateway to that topic in particular and to the field of Entrepreneurial Finance in general. I won’t claim a gold-standard approach to valuing startups but rather reveal that deal structures are way more important to investors and founders than valuation per se.

Prof. Dr. Carsten Bartsch
Visiting Professor of Marketing, Strategy and Entrepreneurship

Isn´t it great, if your company is successful? Or, even better, if you are a global market leader? Sure, enjoy the moment, because this can change tomorrow! How can companies manage to remain strong and innovative in the long run? How can you manage to be strong like a large company yet we as agile as a start-up? How can you be a corporate manager yet still think like an entrepreneur? These are some of the questions we will be discussing in my course on “Intrapreneurship”.
