Investment Valuation

An investment valuation, or VC valuation, is perfect for valuing early-stage startups. It establishes the pre-money valuation of a company, even for pre-revenue startups. This refers to the value of a company before the financing round. The VC valuation reflects the view of an investor, who is looking for a high exit to reward them for taking the risk in investing in a startup.

Why is a valuation important for VC funding?

Securing funding for your startup can be challenging. Many investors, venture capitals, even family and friends, are skeptical whether or not your business idea will gain much success. This is why getting a valuation is important to be able to convince potential investors to believe in your business. A valuation not only gives value to your business, but it also shows your business’s advantages in the industry.

Valuation Methodologies

There are many valuation methods available, and the 3 most common methods in VC valuation are market approach, income approach, and venture capital (VC) approach. Our valuation team has years of experience in using these approaches in conducting valuations.

  • Market Approach – In using the market approach, an asset’s worth is based on publicly available data of similar assets and comparable situations. The main idea of this approach is to get the price that is a multiple of the benchmark, that is the price to earnings ratio, price to book value, EV to Revenue, EV to EBITDA, etc.
  • Income Approach – Compared to the market approach, the income approach does not need to look at any past similar transactions in the market. In the income approach, the business is valued at the present value of its future earnings or discounted cash flow (DCF). The cash flows and future earnings are determined by projecting the present earnings of the company, then adjusting them according to growth rates, taxes and other factors.
  • Venture Capital Approach – The VC valuation approach is the most common startup valuation approach. This approach establishes the pre-money valuation of a company that has not achieved revenue yet. By using this approach, potential exit values are easier to estimate once certain milestones are reached.
Aside from the three valuation approaches mentioned above, we also consider other methods that are used in startup valuations. These methods include: Scorecard Valuation Method, Risk Factor Summation Method, and Berkus Method (valuation by stage), and other startup valuation methods.

Why You Need an Investment Valuation

To get the attention of investors, you will need to provide them with a well-thought-out pitch deck that illustrates what your business does or will do. By getting an investment valuation, you can enhance your pitch deck to show what your company is valued at and what your competitive advantages are. You will attract more investors, and in turn, get more funding for your business. Also, by having an investment valuation, you can set the percentage of ownership for investments (e.g. if your company has a pre-money valuation of $10 million, and you want an investment of $1 million, then you should ask for 10% ownership).
