Today, we’re announcing the integration of Carta Launch with Firstbase so you can focus on building your company instead of your cap table. Once you’ve incorporated your company on Firstbase, your cap table will automatically show up on the Carta Launch platform. 

Launch is a free platform for early-stage founders that you can use to manage your cap table, grant employee equity, model dilution, issue SAFEs to investors, and stay organized. We built it to make it as easy as possible for founders to start their company off right. With Firstbase, we found a team who shared our passion for improving the founder journey and felt driven to work hand-in-hand with us to make it a reality. 

Starting today, founders who incorporate with Firstbase can use Firstbase Loop’s integration with the Carta Launch API to set up their new company on Carta. All equity data pertaining to the founders’ stock is instantly populated in Carta. From there, you can log into Carta, review your equity stakes (populated from Firstbase via the Carta Launch API), and go live—without having to search through legal agreements.  

Thank you to Firstbase for being the first partner to integrate with the Carta Launch API. We can’t wait to see what new founders build with Firstbase and Launch.
