Valuing initial intellectual capital contribution in new ventures - A short technical note
Date of this Version
In this short research note, we add to the existing technical literature on venture valuations. We posit and numerically demonstrate a simple technique of valuing intellectual contribution to a new venture in the form of initial know-how. Such valuation is essential in many practical venture valuation situations where the sources of the intellectual and cash contributions are separate thus necessitating a rational model for a fair apportioning of equity.
