Welcome to a new BetaKit weekly series designed to help startups and entrepreneurs. Each week, investors Roger Chabra and Katherine Hague tackle the tough questions facing founders today.
It’s a new year and just as people are setting new year’s resolutions, entrepreneurs are also setting goals for the year ahead. A big part of every entrepreneur’s annual planning, whether they are on the market for funding or not, is creating financial projections.
As BetaKit’s Ask an Investor series often shows, there are common questions many entrepreneurs have when they’re thinking of raising funding. How do you determine valuation? Is a funding round something to be celebrated, or should you keep it to yourself? When is the right time to fundraise?
Last summer, MaRS hosted a Talent Best Practices event featuring David Au-Yeung, who is a managing director and the chief talent officer at Flipp. Connecting retailers with consumers, Flipp was invented to make weekly shopping faster and easier.
This was first presented at the December 2016 TechTO.
