Value Assessment: "How to value a company or a project"
When an R&D project moves along the development pathway, science eventually meets business and questions arise concerning valuation and market value of the project. This is particularly critical for projects that require external and VC funding and move to form startups. But how is such a project/ a company valued, particularly after maturing to become a late-stage R&D pharmaceutical project?
