SaaS-valuaatiot: Näin sijoittajat ja ostajat määrittävät arvon | Ville Rissanen | EY Corporate Finance

Kun on aika hakea rahoitusta tai neuvotella yrityksen myynnistä, on valuaatiota liian myöhäistä miettiä. Tunnuslukuihin ei enää ehdi vaikuttaa. Niinpä nyt kannattaa suunnata SaaS-klubille perehtymään miten ja mille tasolle sijoittajat ja ostajat SaaS-yrityksiä nyt arvostavat.

Mitä siis pitäisi tehdä, jotta SaaS-yritys saisi muhkean rahoituksen tai mehukkaan ostotarjouksen? SaaS-valuaatiota ja valuaatiomekanismeja klubille tulee avaamaan Ernst & Youngin Ville Rissanen, ja juontajana tavalliseen tapaan Antti Pietilä. Fokus ja data on miljoonaluokan SaaSeissa, mutta sinnehän kaikki tähtäävät.
