Experts at Konsultori
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.
Direct funding partner accreditation at the Vienna Stock Exchange
Konsultori has been an accredited direct funding partner at the Vienna Stock Exchange since June 2019. We help growth-stage SMEs and startups with funding rounds prior to listing on the stock exchange, as well as during rounds on the way to becoming a listed business. We bring businesses and investors together and act as consultants for the preparation of such meetings.
Investment strategy & process
We support business sales and funding rounds with strategic or financial investors. Depending on your industry, different processes need to be defined in order to be able to manage and complete the process within the scheduled timeframe.
Investors need a few solid arguments to explain why your business generates added value and why your business valuation is forecast to increase exponentially in the future. That is summarised in an equity story and together with your investment teaser, it is the backbone of your investment story.

Financing rounds at Go2Market
“Konsultori and Petra Wolkenstein are extremely professional. Her experience really helped us to get through the first funding round. We were thrilled that the documents and arguments which we produced in the preparations stage were so well received in our search for investors and during negotiations. I appreciated such a straightforward, hassle-free and honest partner who never forgot our goals and timeline. Without Konsultori, we’d never have managed to achieve everything within such a short space of time”
