First things first, what is Startup Valuation?
Startup valuation is the process of calculating the value of a startup company. Startup valuation methods are particularly important because they are typically applied to startup companies that are currently at a pre-revenue stage.
A startup’s valuation should not be performed as a rule of thumb, or with black box practices that leave space for arbitrary conclusions. Traditional valuation approaches are methodological and grounded, but they need to be adjusted to capture the value of startups.
A Startup Company will have multiple stages including the Idea Stage, Development Stage, Startup Stage, and Expansion stage. The valuation drivers and the final value conclusion will change based on stages of development. The purpose of the Valuation is to start a fruitful and transparent negotiation process between the parties involved. It shows the valuation of the company, its details, the financial projections, and all the parameters involved.
Most importantly, it is useful to the Angel & VC Investors during your next stage of financing.
