Helping to raise Series A investment for tech companies.
The valuation of a company is a synthesis of multiple scenarios and therefore an art of approximation. This is all the more difficult for investors who are looking to identify the new ventures that will make a real difference in their portfolio. If we were to compare it to a chemistry experiment, startups are a gaseous substance: they move fast and unpredictably, making it difficult to take a telling snapshot of their situation and formulate hypotheses that stand the test of time. Indeed, classic valuation models are geared towards predicting the long-term behaviour of solids, ie. mature companies ready for listing or already listed. This conundrum has become most felt since the advent of Silicon Valley and, more recently, the booming of European and Asian startup hubs. Investing in seed and early stage ventures has never been more exciting but the question of fair valuation still remains, as the current tools are ill-fitted for this exercise.
