Protect your know-how
Know-how is a valuable asset for any business. It can give it a competitive advantage and represent a significant part of its value. Blockchain is a technology that can help you protect your know-how.
Blockchain is a secure and distributed database. It offers reinforced protection against theft and counterfeiting. It is also an effective way to prove the existence of your know-how.
We offer to help you record your know-how on a private blockchain. This blockchain will be managed by a trusted third party, who will guarantee the integrity and confidentiality of your data.
You have invested in your business for several years, but your investment appears in your accounts as a loss. You want to stay ahead of the competition, but you need a competitive advantage to finance you.
We help you protect your know-how through proof of ownership and prior rights, which can be crucial in the event of a dispute.
Here are some of the benefits of protecting your know-how:
- A higher margin: by protecting your know-how, you prevent your competitors from copying it. This allows you to maintain a higher margin on your products and services.
- A competitive advantage: protecting your know-how gives you a competitive advantage over your competitors. This allows you to develop new products and services faster and more efficiently.
- Increased chances of financing: Protecting your know-how can help you obtain financing from investors. Investors will be more inclined to invest in your business if you can prove to them that your know-how is protected.
Valuing a business is a complex process that requires taking into account several factors.
The choice of evaluation method depends in particular on the situation of the company, the objectives of the evaluation and the availability of data.
The location of the company is an important factor to consider because it can influence the value of the company. For example, a growing company is more likely to have significant intangible capital, which makes dynamic assessment of intangible capital more appropriate.
The objectives of the assessment are also important to consider, as they determine the level of precision required. For example, an evaluation intended for a business transaction requires a more precise evaluation method than an evaluation intended for a performance review.
Data availability is an important factor to consider, as some assessment methods require more data than others. For example, the discounted cash flow method requires estimates of future cash flows, which can be difficult to obtain.
The criteria for choosing an evaluation method are as follows:
- Accuracy: the method must provide a reliable estimate of the value of the company.
- Complexity: the method must be simple enough to be implemented practically.
- Ease of implementation: the method must be accessible to non-expert users.
- Relevance: the method must be adapted to the situation of the company and the objectives of the evaluation.
There are several methods of business valuation, which can be classified into four main categories:
- Asset approach: the value of the company is estimated based on the value of its tangible and intangible assets.
- Performance approach: the value of the company is estimated on the basis of its past or future performance.
- Cash flow approach: the value of the company is estimated based on its future cash flows.
- Comparative approach: the value of the company is estimated by comparing its characteristics to those of other similar companies.
The dynamic valuation of intangible capital is an approach that makes it possible to assess the impact of intangible capital on the value of the company. It is based on the present value theory of cash flows (VAF).
Intangible capital is a set of non-monetary assets that are not recorded on the company’s balance sheet. It includes in particular the brand, the customer base, the know-how and the intellectual property rights.
The dynamic evaluation of intangible capital makes it possible to better defend the overall value of the company by taking into account assets which are not taken into account by traditional heritage methods.
