Re: [newtech-1] How Much is My Idea Worth?

Mark,

There are a bunch of different ways to value a business, but most tend to devolve to some form of DCF, multiples, or "finger in the wind" (what it sounds like). Probably more important than what the business is worth in some formal valuation process, which any really good business management consultant can help you with, is the negotiation process, which a really great consultant can help you with. Specifically, how much is it worth to you, how much is it worth to the buyer, and how much is it worth on the open market.

This is what I do for a living. If you want to talk further, contact me directly [address removed].

I've developed a process for performing a unique online transaction
that I'm in the early stages of patenting and have been approached by
a company that's interested in buying my idea. I recently began
developing my own business around the process but haven't started
generating any revenue, so how do I determine the value of my idea?
I'd appreciate it if someone with experience in this area could speak
with me briefly.

Thanks,
Mark
