The course combines Oxentia’s expertise in commercialisation and start-ups, with industry best practice.
You will leave this course with an understanding of how and when to use appropriate valuation methodologies for your early stage technology or business.
We will show examples of how this applies when seeking to license a technology, or raise investment for a company.
