The MinderSoft case explores the entrepreneur's attempt to raise a first round of venture capital. The founder and venture fund's valuation differ by a large amount. The founder must decide whether to accept this offer or search further. The case is designed to help students compare frequently used valuation frameworks including the venture capital method and discounted case flow methods.
