CAP Tables & Convertible Notes

A capitalization table, or cap table, is a list of a company’s securities and who owns them. For startups that raise and compensate with equity, cap tables are a fundamentally important part of operations and financial projections.

In this workshop we will teach how to build and maintain a comprehensive cap table for early-stage startups.
