We bring the value of know-how to angel investing.
Doing a good deal for angels
Intellectual property (IP) is a key consideration in angel investing: IP is often the only ‘real’ asset pre-revenue and early stage companies own. Inngot’s tools get deals done by helping both parties understand what this IP is, and what it may be worth.
The core IP and other intangibles a company has to offer can be described in just a few minutes with Inngot’s online profiling tool. The Sollomon system then provides a convenient, affordable way to estimate these assets’ present-day value, providing insights to address one of the most thorny problems in angel investing - agreeing a valuation.
Supporting the angel investing process
Sollomon assesses the value of IP using the generally accepted ‘relief from royalty’ principle, but overlays risk assessment techniques developed with specialist input from Grant Thornton UK LLP to express these as a present-day value indication. It’s the most sophisticated tool of its kind, and the first on the web, which is why a growing number of angel networks are adopting it.
Inngot’s profiles and the Sollomon valuation tool assist the whole angel investment cycle:
- Business plans vary widely in complexity and size. Our tools summarise the key points in each opportunity, and ask the important questions that help entrepreneurs become more investment-ready.
- Innovators seeking investment often find it hard to set a realistic share price. Our Sollomon valuation tool objectively assesses what the key business assets are really worth today.
- Once an opportunity has attracted interest from a range of investors, difficulty can often arise in reconciling different views on valuation. Because Sollomon is dispassionate, it can ‘unstick’ these conversations and keep momentum in the investment process.
