How to value my 1-year start-up?

On one side, one of my friends wants to invest some money in my start-up, and on the other side we have started discussions with a business angel. Both amounts are obviously not the same and I do not believe their equity share should be the same “mathematical” formula. Any tip on how to treat both?

  • My recommendation – don’t do any company valuation. The company likely isn’t ready for that, and the amount of money being invested likely isn’t such that a valuation is not warranted.

    Use Slicing Pie ( for overall company equity which could accommodate both investors. But you should also look into the SAFE model to handle these seed stage investments while using Slicing Pie for founder equity.
