Valuation Methodologies

Most startups are new business enterprises focusing on creating new ideas or technology and offering them to the market as a new product or service. When conducting a valuation, financial analysts use a variety of valuation methods to determine the value of a business. In our startup valuation software, we make use of 5 valuation methods:

  • Berkus Method – The Berkus Approach focuses on evaluating a startup based on a thorough examination of five critical success factors: (1) Basic Value, (2) Technology, (3) Execution, (4) Strategic Relationships in its primary market, and (5) Production and Subsequent Sales. A thorough analysis is carried out to determine how much value the five main success criteria provide to the enterprise’s total worth in quantitative terms.
  • Scorecard Method – The scorecard method assesses businesses based on several criteria, including stage, market, and area. These elements have a direct impact on the company’s value. This value allows angel investors to determine an average valuation for startups that have the potential to expand but have yet to generate revenue. The target startup seeking investment is compared to other similarly financed startups using this strategy. To calculate an appropriate average, this method employs weighted percentages and market data.
  • Risk Factor Method – For new startups, the risk factor method is a rough pre-money valuation method. It bases the company’s valuation on a comparable startup’s base value, and this baseline value is then modified for a total of 12 risk variables. This means that your startup is being compared to other startups to determine whether you are at a higher or lower risk. How to analyze an early-stage startup, how the startup works, how to justify startup valuation for financing, and many more questions frequently come in a valuation. At the start of their fundraising journey, most founders are concerned about all of these issues.
  • VC Method – The Venture Capital (VC) Method is the ideal solution for startups, especially if your startup does not have revenues yet. The VC method can be used to value early-stage, pre-revenue enterprises, which is why venture capitalists all over the world refer to it as a valuation strategy.
  • DCF Method – Discounted Cash Flow (DCF) uses predicted future cash flows to determine the value. It determines the current value of an asset based on future forecasts of how much money it will generate. The method considers inflation when calculating the present value of the company.
