Expertise von Konsultori

Business valuation

We specialise in business valuations for early-stage startups. At this stage, the future growth of your business is still highly uncertain, meaning special methods for valuation must be applied. Late-stage businesses use the DCF method as standard, combined with a multiples approach. Sometimes, an asset valuation is also necessary.

Financial planning

In the creative industries and technology sector especially (platform model, SaaS model, corporate sales), we have several years of experience and provide templates for financial planning which are challenged using benchmarks.

EU-certified international transfer consultant

In 2017 Konsultori became a certified international, cross-border transfer consultant under the EU project DANAE “Advisors in a Novel SME Transfer”
