Valuing your business can be a daunting task. Too high and you’ll put off investors, too low and you’ll do yourself a major disservice. Having raised investment of over £100m into more than 200 early-stage companies, Envestors has developed a Scorecard and Flag System to give those new (and old) to investing some helpful benchmarks against which to measure. The Scorecard uses quantitative measures based upon numerical responses from historical data and binary inputs (yes/no). The Scorecard does not cover commercial due diligence in terms of reviewing customers and the competitive market. Nor does it allow for future financial projections (mainly because these have not proved to be a fair reflection of actual performance!). As such, it should be used as a rough guide only.
