Sun Taoran: virtual high valuation is actually in their pit
founder Sun Taoran believes that entrepreneurs must understand a truth: financing is not to sell the company.
is the founder of financing in place for starting a new exam, but the high valuation of the equivalent of their performance to set a high standard of the original investors and founder do 90 points are very happy, because the financing valuation increased by 90 points, equivalent to 60 points, it is easy to let everyone lost.
and inflated valuations will scare away good investors. Accept the high valuation is often the best or even not good investors, because they can not get a better investment opportunities, and even because they do not understand and not professional, will be accepted by the inflated valuation. Therefore, usually, the outstanding investors do not agree with the high valuation, and even do not agree with the founder of high valuation mentality.
