Why would you even use a dcf to value a small tech startup. I'd personally assume any valuation is basically meaningless

Easiest way would be to use the hurdle rate that VCs or PEGs would use if they were to provide capital. It's not perfect, but it's reasonable.

One thing I'd add in addition to illiquidity premium is to use a small company premium from ibbotsons etc... smaller the company, higher the risk and higher WACC

Curious if any MBB folks can shed light on current hiring environment. Undergrad campus hire at Deloitte S&O recently laid off in the COVID cost cutting wave after 2 years. Disappointed, but grateful for some freedom to explore here! Primarily looking at industry/corp strat jobs since consulting in general has been hit so hard, but considering applying to Big 3. Have heard from a few MBB friends that new hires with offers aren’t starting till end of year. Any chance of a lateral move right now?

Ladies—I am terrified of flying—particularly the parts where we are not over land and the parts where turbulence is really bad. I literally just sit on the plane, staring at the map on the tv screen, with anxiety. I’m supposed to be flying across the world on a 14-hour non-stop flight in 2 weeks. I grew up moving/traveling and therefore flying a ton but always hated it and was scared. I haven’t been on a plane since September of 2019 (due to covid and moving to the same city as family). Advice?

One of my Kinders refuses to go to the bathroom at school. I have a bathroom in my classroom and there is a bathroom at the playground. He will hold it until he wets his pants. I have tried everything that I know of to get him to use the bathroom. I’ve talked with my principal and the school counselors and have tried everything that they have come up with. Nothing is working. Mom and dad both say that this is the only place he does this at. He will go just fine outside of school. Suggestions?

We're thinking of rolling out a weight loss competition company wide as part of our Health and Wellness month. Has anyone done something like this at their company and if so, is there an app that you recommend using? We want to keep people's actual weight loss amount confidential - we would love something that would record their percentage lost instead! Thanks in advance for any tips!

Any firms that have made the "work from home" decision yet? We've been getting preparation notices for weeks but not officially given the signal.
