A “Pre-Money” Business Valuation is a term used in the scope of securing equity financing. The pre-money valuation assists in establishing ownership structure post financing. For example, if a pre-money valuation concludes a value of $1.5MM, and the company obtains $500,000 in financing it has given up 25% ownership ($500,000/$2,000,000). The agreed upon pre-money value of a startup company is important in that the ownership does not want to relinquish too large of an ownership position in some cases.
