VALITHEA ADVISORY HELPS GLOBAL ENTREPRENEURS CONNECT WITH INVESTORS AND MAXIMISE THEIR COMPANY'S VALUE


Alithea (from Greek, also 'Aletheia') stands for truth, discovery, unconcealment.

I apply this in the context of Valuations, by combining advanced valuation techniques with an analysis of market trends, M&A and fundraising advisory, exit planning and strategy consulting. I use valuation findings to mentor and help entrepreneurs understand their business's potential and sell their company as a great investment, communicating realistic expectations like no other in the market does. In addition, I connect entrepreneurs with investors through a global network and the use of modern online tools and strategies.

I work with startups and small businesses prevalently in the following sectors:

Online Marketplaces, e-Commerce and m-Commerce

Fintech & non-banking financial services

Real Estate, Construction, Energy efficiency & Architecture

Business Services, Media & Big Data

Social platforms and sharing economy

Consumer Products & Design

SaaS, IoT & Off-Grid Technology

Tourism & Leisure

Over 60 projects carried out for 25+ clients, with a focus on large-scale sustainable business models in the EMEA region.

Valithea's global projects
When do you need a valuation?
  • Equity Funding

    Before or after contacting business angels, VCs, other capital providers or listing on a crowdinvesting platform, companies like having their business valued to understand their potential and be prepared for the negotiation process

  • Acquisitions, mergers and demergers

    Other than price negotiations, a sell-side valuation can contribute to the identification of the highest-paying investor. In addition, the early preparation of a company sale helps maximise the transaction value by implementing value-maximising measures years in advance.

  • Assessment of potential investments

    Valuation consulting can particularly benefit business angels wanting to invest in uncertain start-up opportunities, or strategic investors wishing to increase their company's value through a careful acquisition strategy. Valuations are also carried out on a regular basis for group financial statements and impairment tests.

  • Ownership Changes

    In case of shareholders' squeeze-out, introduction of new shareholders and profit-sharing agreements, a valuation or related consulting allows for a fair distribution of wealth. Professional valuation engagements are also undertaken in cases of heritage, tax reporting and compensation arrangements.

Services

Feel free to set up an introductory call by using the contact details below.

All projects will involve a wide M&A network and the use of suitable new media strategies. This saves you considerable time and leaves you free to run your company. These services are ideal for both seed stage startups and growth stage companies raising over €1million. You should ideally have at least 6-8 months runway when starting the fundraising process. The following packages are consulting fees (rather than finder's fees).

Capital Raising services

Why should you engage a consultant?

  • To calculate exactly how much funding you need and avoid recurring liquidity problems
  • To adjust your strategy to your realistic market penetration (no one does this) – No investment can be presented to an investor without a proper due diligence (and some modifications)
  • To structure your company and financing in a way that doesn’t discourage future rounds of financing or an exit
  • To give more reliable information to investors on return expectations
  • To combine your fundraising strategy with your product launch through a media strategy
  • To avoid losing your value by partnering with the wrong investor
  • To possibly have a choice of investor to partner with
  • To sell yourself at a valuation relative to your potential and not exclusively at a valuation dictated by others
  • To create interest in the market by concentrating the approach over fewer months
  • To avoid selling yourself short, and to include all your wishes and future strategy to increase value
  • To use your financials to track your progress and identify gaps in your business model and further needs for validation (your financials can be calculated at any stage and are just as good as your strategy)
