Venture Valuation conducts an independent valuation of Genedata, a Swiss start-up company in order to help Novartis Venture Fund analyze and structure the next financing round. Venture Valuation has to, given a very tight deadline, customize the evaluation process to using quantitative and qualitative data to best meet its customers needs. The case outlines the task ahead of Venture Valuation and requires students to make assessments and calculations and finally come up with a valuation for the startup, Genedata.
