Tell us more about what you do?

At Instaval, we promote equity investments in start-ups and scale-ups. Our goal is to democratize the fundraising process through the use of data-driven technology, thus reducing market inefficiencies in raising capital.

What made you set-up Instaval?

During Akram’s time within private equity and investment banking, he observed how entrepreneurs were underserviced in funding their businesses.

Akram has instructed countless deals, in millions of dollars worth of deal value across the board in industries and verticals. With this experience under his belt, he felt the duty to share with entrepreneurs quality advice at cost-effective prices. So, he founded a boutique advisory firm to solve this problem, but although this practice was successful, it was still not efficient and clearly not scalable. This is when the idea was born to codify domain knowledge, leverage it with workflow automation, and power it with artificial intelligence to help founders to get funded at scale. This was the genesis of InstaVal.

How do you help entrepreneurs and business leaders?

We help entrepreneurs to get funded in three simple steps without breaking the bank.

1. First up, we help companies to discover their business worth with an in-depth and fully defensible business valuation report produced in ten minutes or less.

2. Next, we help businesses get deal-ready providing them with the financial domain expertise to engage investors with confidence.

3. Finally, our matching algorithm identifies investors that are an excellent match for your opportunities that you can apply to, sharing your data room in one click.
