About Carta

Always be helpful.

We build software to help companies, investors, law firms, and employees modernize the way they manage ownership.

The Carta Story

Our mission is much bigger than cap table management.

Founded in 2012, Carta started by helping private companies manage their cap tables. Since then we have expanded into valuations, investor services and public markets. We now support 7,000+ companies, 400,000+ unique stakeholders, and have valued over $200B in private assets. It is our mission to map the global ownership network for companies, investors, and employees.

From Rio to San Francisco, team Carta is made up of doers, former founders, leading financial experts, and elite developers. Read about how we hire or check out our full blog here.
