Summary Of Our Early Findings Relevant To The Goals

  • As we were not directed as to whether the $300 million enterprise value should be based on revenue, valuation, funding, or market capitalization, we chose to proceed with any of the four metrics based on available information because market capitalization and revenue for private companies are rarely available. If any of the four metrics ( revenue, valuation, funding, or market capitalization) is preferred, then that should be communicated to us in any reply, but please be advised that if another metric is chosen, it could negate this research, and the suggested scoping
  • Our initial hour of research provided many insights that directly answer the questions provided to us, but we were unable to tackle the entire ask due to time constraints.
  • The research will be completed in the attached spreadsheet.
  • Please select one or more of the options provided in the proposed scoping section below.
