The paper considers the valuation of start-up companies in the light of the International Valuation Standards, IFRS 13 and the practice of venture capitalists, business angels and investors. We present the main approaches and methods of startups valuation depending on their stage of development. We present the case of a startup enterprise that offers SaaS financial services. We employ a hybrid model to apraise the startup company. The issue on startups valuation is new considering the current development of the startups ecosystem in Bulgaria. The contribution of the paper is in examination of various methods and approaches for startups valuation and the attempt to unify the various standards by imposing practice.
