Early-stage investors services
Alithea (from Greek, also 'Aletheia') stands for truth, discovery, unconcealment.
There is value in truth and in transparency when making business decisions. Today, we possess many tools to come as close as possible to estimating how a company will perform. Valithea has refined these tools to make it possible to create realistic financial projections from the very early stages, and to publish valuations that take all leading and experimental valuation methods into account, with a commitment to have trustworthy, informed and transparent financial transactions involving new and fast-growing companies.
Valithea is an online business that helps make the investment process easier for early-stage investors and potential or existing portfolio companies, wherever the project is. The consultancy projects have transparent flat fees, set timelines and set goals – after developing the most efficient methods based on years of working with clients.
With experience of working in the most innovative sector, all methods are constantly adapted to changing markets, upcoming trends, new sectors and enriched by the industry knowledge of clients.

Valithea's Global Projects
Expert work & Certified
Projects are always carried out by me, no work is passed on to less experienced personnel. This is not always true when hiring large consultancy firms that employ from entry level to experienced personnel. Valuations are certified by a trained CVA. The vast majority of valuations are carried out with sub-standard methods by consultants with no specific valuation qualification.
Goal-oriented & ethical work
When hiring a consultant you typically have a certain goal in mind. Communicating that goal, assessing whether it is realistic and ensuring that any work is useful towards the goal is the work of a consultant. Valithea follows specific processes that benefit the client, with the end-goal in mind, by not taking up half-projects or spending hours on useless tasks simply because they are requested. When hiring a freelancer, you may have more freedom to dictate specific tasks, get them to patch up old templates, but often you will not be told whether you are putting your money to good use.
Ethical work means that Valithea as a business focuses on performing tasks that bring value to you, not by over-promising or by charging for useless tasks. Valuations are performed with a view to a beneficial long-term relationship between entrepreneurs and investors, by avoiding highly overvaluing or undervaluing a company. At the same time, fundraising is only offered to companies who are ready and can offer a return on investment.
Medium price, top quality, flat fees, online service delivery
Valithea offers expertise at a medium price, not by outsourcing, but by cutting down on what real entrepreneurs do not really need: an office, complicated administrative structures, personal meetings, tailored contracts for every small task, payment collection for delays, open-ended consulting and confusing client-consultant relationship. Except for projects that require on-site due diligence, Valithea delivers services exclusively online. Valithea offers detailed online contracts, flat and transparent fees, quick project-closing and the ability to purchase online. Turnaround of the project is quick, with a fixed time (e.g. one month) for unlimited consulting and project updates. Extensions are based on time (one week) not on hours worked, being therefore easier to plan on both sides.
Valithea is highly specialised in startups, early-stage projects and investment trends in high-growth businesses. Volatility and risk assessment and specific valuation techniques were developed specifically for these stages and new industries. As trends and technology are constantly evolving, I am always learning from and adapting the services to the clients. Advanced techniques are adapted to the need for fast and direct communication in the investment world. Valithea therefore combines the advantages of an accountant's advanced knowledge with an M&A consultant's pragmatism.
Financial plans are advanced and at the same time built with the aim of being editable and usable by the client, but by taking away the ability to input unrealistic assumptions (which is not present in any finance software used).

Smart money from startup investors follows ever changing trends in terms of sector, region, stage, and instrument.

Something that almost all entrepreneurs need to deal with embarking on a new venture is raising funds. That’s when they start preparing a financial plan, explore different strategies and demonstrate that their venture has value. When you have a vision of where you want to take your company from the early stage though, your financing[…]
Value is not always what you think. In the startup world, everyone is talking about it, tech news are filled with funding round valuation analysis and exit stories. Yet the talk often only touches the surface of what there is to know about the valuation of early-stage investments, or even the valuation of any company[…]
There are a few companies out there offering automatic valuations for startups. While it seems like a good option for all those companies who can’t figure out how valuation works and what value to communicate to investors, using an automated model completely fails the scope of the valuation. There are three main reasons for this: Your financial[…]
Startups and SMEs alike are often clueless as to what documents and information are needed to approach investors. These documents vary depending on the purpose (whether you’re looking to give away minority shares, to receive a loan or to sell your company) and on the type of investor that you’re approaching (VCs and other institutional investors,[…]
Navigating through the countless EU projects for promoting investments into innovative companies can be challenging for entrepreneurs. The reality is that most of the direct financing takes place on a local level – the best source to identify these financial intermediaries that have accessed European funding to finance local companies are listed directly on the official EU database ,[…]
Aswath Damodaran’s webinar on “Narrative and Numbers: A Guide to Disciplined Story Telling and Imaginative Number Crunching” on Sageworks provided some very interesting insights into different approaches to valuation. Damodaran distinguishes between those people who are more comfortable with number crunching, and the storytellers. The ‘Numbers’ people tend to think that valuation is all about[…]
We know that two people never come up with the same valuation. What we have to remember is also that value MUST be different in different situations. Every time we perform a valuation, we make assumptions about the scope of that valuation, and very often the basic assumption correspond to the sale of non-controlling shareholdings to the[…]
Before starting with your valuation you should establish a good information base, whether you’re doing it for your company internally or for an external client, which will save you time and prevent mistakes. This means going through a checklist on the assignment’s characteristics and collecting all key information. If you’re carrying out a valuation as an external[…]
