Actually, I don't have time to waste on someone who has an obvious agenda to start a dust up, so suffice to say there are hundreds of articles on the Internet describing how to value a start up venture firm. This is a particularly good one - it talks all about future cash flows, IP, partnerships, technolgical advantage and some of the things I described earlier. IBAW it's well above your level of financial business acumen, but try and struggle through. At least graze a few pages and then if you have any specific questions not covered you can ask me for an explanation. As I'm not a professional my advice is free and I enjoy mentoring novice investors. Enjoy!
