- Investment from VC investors PUSH Ventures and aws Gründerfonds
- Investment & planned strategic partnership with Erste Group
Valutico, the web-based valuation platform, announces that it has closed its first financing round with outside investors. Existing investors also participated in the round, totalling equity funding in the mid 7-figures.
Investments from Venture Capital firms PUSH Ventures and aws Gründerfonds will make a substantial impact on the business, not only from a product and service perspective but also by gaining their invaluable expertise.
Vienna-based Erste Group is also participating in the financing round and intends to enter into a strategic partnership with Valutico to help further digitalize the bank’s processes around valuation and corporate lending.
Valutico will apply the funding raised in this round of financing to further accelerate its growth, deliver on its product roadmap, and grow its product and engineering teams.
Valutico provides software for data-driven valuation analysis
Valutico serves the Financial Services and Investment Management industries with data-driven tools to conduct valuation analysis more efficiently. In an area dominated by slow and error-prone spreadsheets, Valutico empowers businesses and experts to perform accurate valuations in a fraction of the time it used to take while solving the issue of complex tools, lack of data sources and time-consuming reporting. Valutico’s globally distributed and fast-growing team of 60 employees currently proudly serves around 600 clients in over 85 countries.
Recent innovative product extensions of the existing valuation models, which currently focus on the financial value of a company, include the integration of the Capitalised Earnings Method and Venture Capital (VC) Method. But Valutico is also working on a robust qualitative and quantitative module for the holistic assessment of an organisation’s impact on the environment, society and governance (‘ESG’).
Paul Resch, Co-Founder & CEO comments:
“The new funding rounds off an outstanding year for the company and will allow us to double down on our growth path and continue to innovate around the question of what “value” means in a business context. The benefits of Valutico’s platform are already being felt across the financial landscape and this recent funding helps us strengthen our offering and broaden our positive impact. We are using this opportunity to reinforce our commitment to our clients and we look forward to the road ahead!”
Laurenz Simbruner, Founding Partner at PUSH Ventures comments:
“Paul and the team have shown an impressive track record building a fantastic product for a global audience of business customers. We are super excited to support Valutico on its way to becoming a world leader in the financial services software industry.”
Christoph Haimberger, Managing Director, aws Gründerfonds comments:
“Our investment allows Valutico to grow beyond legacy valuation tools, in ESG and digital usability. A value-driven combination of our investment thesis into “Green Winners” and “Digital Winners”. We are thrilled to be part of the journey with the outstanding and globally ambitious Valutico team.“
Ingo Bleier, Board Member for Corporates Banking & Markets at Erste Group comments:
“At Erste, we are committed to improving our ability to analyse and apply data in order to gain a better understanding of our customers’ needs and to develop our offering accordingly. That’s why we are exploring how Valutico‘s innovative valuation platform can help us to further digitalize part of our process in the corporate banking and underwriting business.”
