Identify ways to minimize risks, maximize opportunities,
and increase your business value

Risk Tool

The Risks Tool shows areas that present the most risk for your venture. It uses a tornado diagram to clearly identify the factors that you’re most uncertain about and that have the largest impact on your business value.

  • Save time when valuing a business by getting a fast, objective evaluation of your biggest risks.
  • See a visualization of where you should focus your time and energy.
  • View the answers that were used to calculate the amount of risk in each area and how making changes in that part of your venture could decrease risk and improve your pre-money valuation (PMV).
Risks and Opportunities Tool

The Risks and Opportunities Tool combines the risk analysis from the previous tool with an overview of the areas that present the most opportunities for your venture.

  • Increase efficiency when valuing a business with an unbiased analysis of your venture’s most significant risks and opportunities.
  • Narrow down which areas present the greatest possibility of improving your business value.
  • View the answers that were used to calculate the amount of risk or opportunity in each area and how making changes could reduce uncertainty, maximize opportunity, and increase your PMV.
Next Steps Tool

Once you’ve analyzed ways to minimize risk and take advantage of opportunities, the Next Steps Tool helps you develop a strategy for how to proceed. It uses a scatter diagram that shows various combinations of actions you could take to increase your venture’s PMV.

  • Visualize the factors that you have the greatest control over and the most drive to improve in order to determine where you should dedicate your attention and effort.
  • See various steps you could take to reduce uncertainty, maximize opportunities, and improve your PMV.
  • Prioritize action items for your team to get started on immediately.
Self-Directed Next Steps Tool

The Self-Directed Next Steps Tool allows you to manually choose action items instead of being presented with a host of scenarios. It uses a decision tree to show you a range of possible valuation outcomes depending on how you choose to reduce risk or pursue opportunities.

  • Increase efficiency when valuing a business with an unbiased analysis of your venture’s most significant risks and opportunities.
  • Narrow down which areas present the greatest possibility of improving your business value.
