Boston Valuation Team to Present at the Cambridge Innovation Center

Jim Dondero, Chris Jones and Jackie O’Loughlin will present Valuations: The What & Why on Thursday, January 24th. The presentation will take place from 5 to 6:00pm in the Kathmandu conference room on the fourth floor of the Cambridge Innovation Center. It is open to the public and attendees will be encouraged to stay for networking at the Venture Café. 

Valuations: The What & Why will discuss 409A valuations and why they matter to you, your company and your employees. The team will have models of common equity structures used by early stage companies to discuss each structure’s affect on valuation. With additional commentary on how the value of your company flows, the value impact of terms and common barriers that a substandard valuation can create.

This event will be held in conjunction with Venture Café, a weekly networking event where those in the local entrepreneurial community gather. Visitors must comply with Venture Café attendance policies (see for more details.)
