Pre-Money Valuation

What is a Pre-money Valuation?

Your pre-money valuation is the value of your company before a funding round. 

Determining a pre-money valuation of a startup can be difficult and somewhat subjective, especially during the initial funding rounds. Valuations could be based on history or projected financial metrics, comparable companies’ values, the founders’ experience, and current VC interest in the deal.

Angel investors, VC firms, and founders may take different approaches, and agreeing on a pre-money valuation can be part of the negotiation process during a funding round.
