Valuation for Early-Stage Companies

John Shumate is CEO of ValuLogik and has focused his career on working closely with venture-backed companies. He has worked with hundreds of early- and growth-stage companies across many industries, many of them dealing with highly-technical products or business models. He believes strongly in the use of carefully-applied rigor to rationalize financial models, business plans, valuations, and other quantification tools. He has over a decade of financial experience, including buy-side and sell-side mergers and acquisitions; debt and equity capital raises; strategic consulting; complex financial modeling; business plan development; equity and derivative valuation; and venture incubation. John recently served as Vice President at Blue Equity, a growth-stage private equity firm, and Chief Financial Officer at BellaNovus, an early-stage medical device development company. He was a Senior Associate at bCatalyst, a business incubator and financial services provider to early-stage companies. He has also held analytical roles for Ethicon-Endo Surgery, a division of Johnson & Johnson, and Hilliard-Lyons, a regional brokerage house. John attended the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, where he received a B.S. in Economics and dual concentrations in Finance and Management
