Venture Capital Versus Private Equity Firms: How Do They Value Businesses?

“Everyone wants to exit, but not everyone can.”

Over the last decade, we’ve seen startup valuations go off the charts thanks to low interest rates among other things. Now many of the huge, storied startups that have gone public over the last few years have seen their valuations slashed.

Today we explore what goes into a company's valuation, how IPOs change the way startups are judged, the role Private Equity firms play in the funding ecosystem, and the key factors for an appropriate exit strategy.

Helping us with this discussion is Lim Jet Liang, partner at 5X Capital, a Securities Commission registered PE Management Company based in Malaysia.
