Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question:

Valuation of a startup is estimating the worth of it [3]. Pre-money valuation is used by venture capitalist and private equity [1] before the company receives any financing. There can be a few rounds of financing for a corporation. Investors such as venture capitalist, private equity, or angel investors may use this valuation in order to evaluate how and how much to invest.

Post-money valuation is the value of a corporation after some money has been invested in a corporation [2]. This valuation takes into account the pre-money valuation and any new investment.
