DIFC-based company launches digital investment banking platform

InstaVal provides private businesses with valuation reports

DIFC-based company launches digital investment banking platform

Akram El Youssi, founder and CEO of InstaVal.

A data-driven digital investment banking platform has been launched in the Middle East and Africa providing business valuation reports for private companies.

Based out of Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) the investment readiness and investor matching platform, InstaVal, is aimed particularly at SME owners to gauge options in the current market climate, in terms of raising money, merging with competition, or selling a business.

“For either economic path, they’d have to put a price tag on the asset, i.e. work out an independent fair market business valuation,” said Akram El Youssi, founder and CEO.

The algorithm requires input from 40 data points spread over 30 business questions, which includes fundamentals, financials and transactional parameters. From this a one-page valuation report is created in PDF format.

“InstaVal drastically lowers the barrier to reach relatively accurate results, fast with the right level of trust and at the fraction of the cost,” said Jordan Wahbeh, managing partner at Bay Angels.

So far, the platform has valued more than 10,000 early stage companies, operating in over 40 industries, located in 50+ countries.
