Abaca takes frustration out of raising capital by providing a common language for founders and investors, a picture of where a company stands now and a roadmap for where to go next.

How It Works

Abaca will calculate an overall Venture Investment Level — from Level 1, a founding team and an idea, to Level 9, a market-leading company. Your overall level points you to the right stage of funding and assistance, and category-specific levels identify milestones you’ve achieved and need to achieve before your next raise.

“Working with it really helped us map a path for the growth of the product because we were able to see very clearly, the point we were really at, at the time. It’s possibly the best strategy for investor communication for early-stage startups.”
