As a growth company, it’s important that you have a full overview and understanding of your capitalization table (cap table). Although this document may look like a standard spreadsheet, it lays out who the company’s stakeholders are and how many shares each person owns. Sounds simple, right? But this does not do justice to the complexity that cap table management entails.
As a company grows, more people invest or are awarded shares and ownership gets increasingly complex. Current and future investors will want to understand who is now on your cap table, and more importantly, you will want to know how your ownership is affected when offering more equity. Not to mention that, your cap table includes drafting and signing legal documents, communicating with shareholders and complying with regulations.
The best way to keep track and manage your cap table properly is by digitising it.
