How to Create Value for Investors

Start up companies rarely have much intrinsic value in the form of assets or cash flow. Their value is measured more in terms of milestone accomplishments. To create value and reduce risk in a startup it is important to assemble an initial team, build a product or obtain proof of concept, or get some customers to demonstrate that the business model works. This increases your chances of raising capital, reduces the risk to investors and increases your valuation.
