Cap table management: a critical aspect for startups and investors

February 14, 2024

The capitalisation table, or cap table for short, is an essential document for startups that provides a detailed breakdown of shareholdings, including the stakes held by founders, investors and other shareholders. It provides a comprehensive overview of company holdings and is crucial for evaluating ownership structures, managing equity distributions and strategic planning of financing rounds. An accurate and up-to-date cap table is essential to ensure transparency, effectively manage complex ownership structures and provide the basis for informed decisions on future investments and company developments.
