Easily keep track of your startup's ownership

If you plan to issue shares or other forms of equity in your startup, you’ll need a cap table to manage it. Get started with our cap table template that lets you try different scenarios and track ownership in one place.

Who's it for?

Our cap table template is for early stage startups at MVP stage or founders preparing to scale up. You can use it to:
  • Track ownership of your startup company
  • Record different types of ownership, including shares and rights to shares
  • Play around with different shareholding scenarios over multiple past and future funding rounds
  • Include an Employee Stock Option Plan (ESOP)
  • Make live updates to your cap table and share it easily

While it gives you options to include different types of stock ownership, this template is designed for relatively straight forward situations.

When you're ready to move on from a spreadsheet, speak to us about how we (and our friends at Cake Equity) can help.
