Frequently Asked Questions About Selling a Technology Company 

How do you value equity in a startup?

In basic terms, to value your equity in a startup, multiply the overall value of the company by the percentage of the company that you own. The exact calculation will likely be more complicated, as a number of different factors affect the valuation of a company.

How to value my tech startup?

It can be challenging to value a tech startup, as many of these smaller companies aren’t publicly listed, produce little revenue, and face uncertain futures. Though it is an inexact science, valuations of tech startups can be done by a number of different methods, including:

  • Look at the current acquisitions market and what companies have paid for startups of a similar size. 
  • Calculate how much it would cost to duplicate the startup from the ground up.
  • Project the value of the cash flow the company will generate in the future, which is also known as Discounted Cash Flow. 
  • Estimate a value based on what stage of development the company is in. Often, these valuations are set by investors.

How long does a startup acquisition take?

A startup acquisition can last anywhere from three to nine months, due to the vast number of financial and legal matters that need to be resolved. Employing an experienced mergers and acquisitions firm can help to minimize the wait and the hassle associated with this process while ensuring all due diligence is done correctly.
