"The platform itself allows you to manage all aspects of share and option management concisely in one place. The automations and integrations save you time. But while the platform is great, it is the team that makes Vestd stand out. From pre-sales to onboarding and the ever-helpful support team - not only do they support on the platform but provide excellent knowledge in this area."

    Frequently asked questions

    What is a cap table?

    The cap table is a legal document that captures your startup’s capital structure. It spells out shareholder details, financing rounds, and other information about your company’s equity ownership and accompanying rights.

    We’ve created a cap table template that you’re welcome to download but a digital cap table is way better.

    Why is a cap table important?

    Maintaining an accurate and up-to-date cap table shows the business’ growth potential. It particularly helps:

    1. Improve visibility
    2. Increase investor and stakeholder confidence
    3. Influence data-driven decision-making

    And with staying compliant

    What should a cap table look like?

    Comprehensive and up-to-date. Some startups choose to initially build and store cap table information in a spreadsheet. However, over time it becomes harder to keep up with the complexity of a growing business, and can lead to mistakes in your cap table

    If your startup is looking to hire key recruits or raise a new round of funding, an automated, purpose-built solution is the way to go. A digital cap table offers more flexibility, saves you time spent on collating and consolidating information, and custom access for relevant stakeholders.

    Do investors see the cap table?

    Yes. A cap table is built to help shareholders visualise and understand their position in the business. Cap table transparency helps potential investors determine the leverage they can get for their investment in the business. Here are some things investors look for in a cap table.

    Can employees see the cap table on Vestd?

    Not if you don’t want them to. There are no legal requirements stating that the cap table ought to be public. You can choose to share your cap table with relevant shareholders.

    Does a cap table include options?

    Yes. A good cap table captures information about all shares and options granted, exercise price, and any other additional information pertaining to options.

    Should a cap table include debt?

    Early stage businesses raise capital in a variety of ways that can be in the form of equity or debt (convertible or straight). This information needs to be recorded in the cap table to help potential investors understand the financial health of the business.

    Who should manage the cap table?

    Traditionally, businesses seek legal counsel to help manage their cap table. However, it is a costly route. A digital cap table can save you time and money, particularly as the business scales.

    Moreover, a cap table platform makes it easier to consolidate and present information to investors when you’re looking to raise capital.
