Thanks for the hunt Eric. When I'm learning something new I try and put it to realworld-ish usage. I've had the idea for the calculator for a while, and when I wanted to try out http://vuejs.org It seemed like a great project to try it out with. For anyone interested, I really like Vuejs and intended on using for future projects. The site itself is hosted on Github.

Quick feedback: 1) you might want to have the scale go to more than $100m for the company valuation; especially in the Bay Area with companies like Uber. Ironically I once had a prospective employee say "even if the company were to get worth $100 million; my shares would only be worth x". Ironically the startup became worth quite a lot more than $100m within about 18 months. So yeah, probably a good idea to be able to model valuations higher than $100m :) 2) you probably want to clarify the 'total shares' part. e.g. 'total shares issued & outstanding'

@mubashariqbal @_jacksmith actually up it even more. as Jack pointed out you have companies like Uber that are valued well above a billion

@daveparkhere @_jacksmith Good point guys. I was too focused on the early stage startups but the more established ones do have much higher valuations.

@mubashariqbal Now that the scale goes up to $1T, I would recommend making it logarithmic. Very hard to control lower valuation inputs (e.g. 100M)

@mubashariqbal @_jacksmith really hard to do just 1B. maybe create a preset checkbox... 'unicorn' lol

@karanbhangui @_jacksmith Great tool! Excited to share this with my co-workers tomorrow. I agree that the input is now difficult to control but since it's so variable, I'd just add a text input as well to edit the value. Thanks again for creating this!

Well designed, @mubashariqbal. You might want to add taxes to the calculation here as well or at least add a note as it's something people often forget to account for.

@rrhoover Thanks Ryan! I added a note about the taxes, the specifics get very complicated :)

I assume you don't account for any potential dilution. Have you thought about adding that as a parameter to play with?
