    Data Monetization and Valuation in the Age of AI

     Explore the intersection of data (and other digital assets) and corporate value.

    Wednesday, July 17, 2024
    12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. PT

    Online registration is available until July 17, 2024.

    Want to leverage your data and other digital assets for funding, growth and exit? In the age of AI, data is one of the most valuable assets for technology companies, and yet companies are often struggling with how to monetize and leverage those assets to raise funding or to increase valuation.

    In this webinar we will be exploring the intersection of data (and other digital assets) and corporate value. Based on her experiences as a valuation expert, start-up advisor and Stanford Lecturer, Efrat Kasznik will provide practical insights, frameworks and case studies focused on valuing data as a business asset. Some of the topics that will be covered include:

    • Data & Digital Asset definitions
    • Regulatory and ownership issues
    • Data monetization business models: 2-way and 3-way models
    • Data valuation metrics
    • Case studies across industries, such as life sciences, fintech and gaming
