You need to look at firms that do 409A valuations. Cabrillo Advisors and Brenner Group are two. Alternatively, if you are very early stage, use Carta as your cap management system and they will also be your 409A valuation provider for very cheap. Most 409As include DCFs, black scholes and comparable companies analyses. You can learn more about valuation besides Damodoran or Khan Academy by reading Valuation by Copeland et al.

For those that are observing yom kippur, have an easy and meaningful fast. For those with Jewish people on your teams, don’t wish them a “happy Yom Kippur” or ask them to “enjoy the time”- it’s a solemn holiday. It’s also not the responsibility of the Jewish person on the team to teach you about the holiday - you have Google. And it’s really terrible to guilt them for signing off early/taking PTO to observe.

I was offered a position at Deloitte for ~26k more than I’m making currently, but they told me that in 2.5 years when the contract is over I will be out of a job. Obviously I’ll be able to network within those two years and probably find something more permanent, so it’s very similar to gig work at BAH. I also just started a new project at BAH last month so I feel uneasy leaving after a month. Can someone at Deloitte give me more insight about PDM work at the company?
