EquityMaven, a South African fintech startup, has launched an online valuation platform that can produce investment banking-style business valuations. The platform began operating in May 2020 after it was founded by Sean Rule, Craig Stone, Gareth Mountain and Rob LeBlanc. The founders are experienced within the venture capital, private equity, mergers & acquisitions, concluding varied transactions involving startups, small private companies, large banks, multinationals and listed corporate companies.
EquityMaven is able to provide valuations at fee of US$99 per month or R1,750 per month and provides clients the ability to value companies online in all stages of their lifecycle, from startups to large corporate companies. The company will disrupt the traditional valuation companies in the market which take weeks to complete valuations while charging large fees to investors.
