Today, Carta is at a scale where we can offer liquidity every 12–18 months. All employees with vested shares are eligible.
From our CEO
Cap tables are a necessary evil for every startup founder, CEO or CFO. Excel spreadsheets are usually riddled with mistakes. Carta is changing that.
As we move beyond the cap table market, we’ve changed our name to Carta. Carta is about creating more owners by mapping and expanding the ownership graph.
On August 31st we acquired the SVB Valuation business and team. This impacts both the former SVBA employees and customers.
Everyone knows the typical hierarchical organizational chart. We tried to map our shadow economy of influencers to find the key people at Carta.
Employees don’t have a seat at the table when CEOs and investors are discussing equity. The result is decreasing equity for employees.
Carta decided to change PTE to coincide with an employee’s vesting schedule. This gives Carta employees more freedom when exercising shares.
Harry Stebbings from the The Twenty Minute VC interviewed the Carta CEO Henry Ward. They talked founding, Silicon Valley and staying private.
IQ is overvalued in our society while EQ is undervalued. At Carta, we have found the EQ is more correlated with success then IQ.
