Model Real Terms

If It’s in the Term Sheet, It’s in the App

Everything from Anti-Dilution to Warrants, without complex formulas

Valuative lets you create and analyze capital structures in real world terms, directly from the legal documents.

We’ve built in everything from the basics like Common, Preferred, and Debt to the fancy stuff like custom Carve Outs, Liquidation Preferences, Option vesting schedules and complex Convertible Debt.

So instead of confusing formulas like "=if(max(A1,0),A3,A1)", just click on “Participating Preferred Stock” and assign it a cap of 3x.
