Every startup needs a valuation done to know the company's worth at a given time. Especially for pre-seed and seed-stage startups, a valuation service helps your investors deepen their understanding of your business and its growth trajectory. 

At Raise, we use three different perspectives to help you analyze your business and give you a comprehensive & reliable view of your company’s performance in the African market. They include the following:

  1. Future Cash Flows methods: These are the standard and most traditional methods that measure the company's value according to the money generated in the future.
  2. Investors Returns: This method considers the returns the investors expect to earn upon exit to have a profitable portfolio. 
  3. Qualitative Aspects: This method values the element of the company that guarantees future success in the pre-revenues, early-stage companies


  1. Pre-Valuation Call (an introduction session on our valuation services with an analyst)- $50
  2. Valuation Report- (a pre-money valuation)- $100
  3. Post-Valuation Call (a feedback session after report delivery with your team and an analyst) - $50
