Press Release - EquityNet’s Enterprise Analyzer™ Now Used by University Entrepreneurship Programs

Fayetteville, AR -- EquityNet, LLC announced today a program for use and incorporation of Enterprise Analyzer™ in university programs for business planning and entrepreneurship.

 

EquityNet is offering Enterprise Analyzer (EA) to universities that are interested in providing it to students in entrepreneurship and business planning programs. In these programs, students typically form teams that construct a complete business plan for an actual operating business, a new startup, or for the commercialization of university technology.

 

Dr. Carol Reeves, Cupp Applied Professor in Entrepreneurship at the University of Arkansas Walton College of Business stated, "Enterprise Analyzer provides a comprehensive business assessment that gives students a rational way to measure their business plan through the eyes of a sophisticated investor. EA ensures that all required aspects are covered in the business plan and that planning assumptions are realistic through EA's unique peer group comparisons. We are very excited to have this resource available to our students."

 

Each student team can enter its business plan into EA and learn what information sophisticated private equity investors expect and how they analyze a business investment. Enterprise Analyzer estimates the investment attractiveness of the students’ business and benchmarks it against other competing deals (on an anonymous basis), including the business’s fair-market valuation, internal rate-of-return (IRR), and risk profile.

 

EquityNet is currently working with several universities in providing Enterprise Analyzer to their students and plans to expand this program nationwide.
