About This Program

Become an expert in any industry using Vertical IQ, BVR’s new industry research partner! Join Susan Bell, co-founder of Vertical IQ, to learn best practices and how to use the Vertical IQ platform in your next valuation engagement to research industry-specific risks, trends, cash flow, operations, and financial challenges in nearly 400 industries. Attendees will also learn how this powerful platform can assist you in becoming an expert in your subject company’s market presence, financial metrics, and local economic data. Use what you learn in this presentation to take your valuation to the next level with Vertical IQ’s engaging and high impact industry data, which can be easily included in your valuation reports.


  • Discover how to save time with hard-to-find small- and medium-sized business intelligence: We’ll show you how to access nearly 400 industry profiles to get a closer look into a company’s challenges, industry risks, trends, cash flow, and more.
  • Learn how to easily access local economic data: You’ll learn how to use the local economic data included in the Vertical IQ platform.
  • Discover how to quickly locate relevant industry benchmarking data: Clearly understand the ins and outs of profit drivers, how firms operate, and how the company you are valuing fits into the larger picture. Plus, learn how to rank industries by their growth forecast and access three years of financial benchmarking data.
  • Attract more clients and produce high quality valuation reports: Vertical IQ users have access to features such as “SalesKit” that inserts industry research into actionable documents such as emails and presentations, as well as a “My Notes” section to copy and paste important commentary to refer to in future engagements.
