Comparative Marketmethod

This method developed by Estimeo presents a logic that is not very different from the ScoreCard method but uses different calculation methods. A ceiling valuation and a floor valuation are set according to the maturity stage of the startup, which correspond to the minimum and maximum values that an investor is usually willing to pay for a startup at a given maturity stage. The valuation of the evaluated startup is then calculated by applying an exponentially increasing mathematical calculation algorithm that compares the score obtained by the startup with a benchmark score depending on the maturity in question.
