bizval is the result of three professionals joining forces in 2021 to solve a simple but critical problem: how can entrepreneurs and small accounting firms get a reasonable approximation of the value of businesses at an affordable price?

We didn’t invent the online valuation tool. We just made it better. We made it simpler in the front-end and more detailed in the back-end where the calculation engine works its magic. This gives you the best possible estimate of the valuation of your business without making the inputs too complicated.

With combined experience in dealmaking and corporate strategy of over 70 years, the founders have seen the full process of value creation from the formation of a startup through to an eventual exit or substantial capital raise. bizval is the tool that lets you access this expertise for a lower cost than just one hour of time of a junior analyst in a top-tier firm.

• Valuations Unveiled: The Secret Weapon of Fractional CFOs with Doug Pudney

Doug Pudney

Business Valuation Expert

Doug Pudney's fascination with business performance began at age five when his mother explained that a sparse Christmas tree was due to the family business's poor performance. This early lesson ignited a 30-year career in business coaching and consultancy. With a background in accountancy, business law, and economics, he founded Outcomes Business Group, now holding the master licence for bizval Global in the UK. Doug has extensive experience in M&A, transformations, scaling, and startups. His expertise spans five continents, and his clients typically enjoy 58% net profit growth year-on-year and a 170% increase in valuation after 18 months. On weekends, you will find him off-road cycling, cooking, or watching rugby or F1.

Howard Blake

Lawyer and Serial Entrepreneur

Howard is a lawyer, but he prefers to be thought of as a serial entrepreneur. Having founded more than 20 startups and with four decades of experience on boards of companies, his largest company employs 1,800 staff and serves three continents.

Having spent fortunes on valuations from top-tier firms, Howard now believes firmly in the 80-20 principle for valuations and co-founded bizval as a result. With a strong focus on the cash flows and enjoying every business he is involved with, Howard sometimes drags himself away from his desk to drive cars on racetracks. Quickly.

Graham Stephen

Chartered Accountant

Graham is a chartered accountant with two decades of experience in financial services, including years of involvement with startups and business development activities for large and small entities.

With experience across several countries, Graham’s biggest frustration is services that are too complicated and too expensive for entrepreneurs. Co-founding bizval was a direct response to that friction in the market.

When he isn’t helping businesses address their challenges, Graham can be found on the racing simulator or planning his return to motorsport.
