While traditional business valuations have treated cash flow as the ultimate metric for gauging success, many of today's companies focus more on the size of their user community than their bottom line. Responding to evolving perspectives, newer valuation models attempt to assign value to individual consumers, but these models involve a series of assumptions and generalizations that do not always withstand scrutiny. Using Uber as a case study, this session will compare and contrast user-based valuation models with more traditional discounted cash flow (DCF) models, identifying where they converge and diverge.
