Carta Series D pitch deck


We first shared our pitch deck in 2015, when we raised our Series A (we were then known as eShares). The deck we’ve shared here is our Series D deck, which evolved from our Series B and C decks. Numbers are through Q3 2018, with estimates for Q4. We hope you’ll check it out, and see how our story, business, and brand have evolved.

Announcing our Series D


To achieve our goal of creating more owners, while increasing transparency and liquidity between them, we’ve raised additional capital. In 2018, we raised $80 million dollars and closed our Series D, led by Meritech and Tribe Capital, with participation from existing investors. With this new capital, our investors now value Carta at $800 million.

What is Form 3921?


If employees exercised incentive stock options (ISOs) last tax year, your company needs to file IRS Form 3921. Companies must file one form per employee, and if they miss the deadline or ignore IRS reminders and fail to file, they could end up paying expensive fines.

You get the term sheet, we do the math: introducing scenario modeling


Private companies today have more financing and liquidity options than ever. With the option to stay private longer or go public on a growing number of exchanges, it can be hard for companies and their investors to figure out which exit or funding scenario is best for them. So, we built scenario modeling tools on Carta that show you the impact of future financing rounds or possible exits in seconds.

How we work


Carta cares


Carta’s culture is built on a single principle: always be helpful. We encourage our engineers to help each other solve challenging problems and our account managers to go the extra mile for customers. But it doesn’t and shouldn’t end inside Carta’s walls. We aim to extend “always be helpful” to our neighbors and communities as well.
