Abstract

This is the first of a three-case series (IMD-1-0240 to IMD-1-0242). Venture Valuation conducts an independent valuation of Genedata, a Swiss start-up company in order to help Novartis Venture Fund analyse and structure the next financing round. Venture Valuation, under a tight investment time-frame, has to customise the evaluation process, using both quantitative and qualitative data, to meet the customers needs. The case outlines Genedata''s background, its product portfolio, competitive positioning, and issues that it will need to deal with in the near future. The learning objective of this case series is to draw the audience into the issues surrounding the valuation of a start-up biotechnology company, one of the most speculative and volatile marketplaces.
