Early-stage startup valuation can be challenging. When it comes to selecting the right valuation method there is no single best choice. Different people – including investors – will tell you different things and recommend the use of various valuation methods. That’s why it’s important for you to know which methods there are and how they differ.
Also valuation is something that can and should be negotiated with investors. It has a strong influence on the level of the company share you will need to give off. Thus you should be able to discuss the basis of your valuation with investors.
