Founders using Carta Founder Studio now have access to a detailed questionnaire for honing their pitches to early-stage investors.

For early-stage founders, pitching investors can be a nerve-wracking and time-consuming process: It can take months to get onto an investor’s calendar and one short meeting never feels like enough time to explain what makes your company such an exciting investment opportunity. 

Knowing what questions to expect from investors ahead of time lets you make the most of every minute. That’s why we created Investor Insider, a tool for helping you think through the three most important concerns for early-stage investors: your team, the problem you’re trying to solve, and the traction you’ve established so far. Available exclusively through Carta’s Founder Studio, Investor Insider gives you the lowdown on which questions you can expect to hear from investors. We’ll also tell you if you might be “too early” for early-stage investors (and what you need to do before you’re ready to pitch).

Founder Studio members: Start refining your investor pitch. Log into your Founder Studio and check out Investor Insider today.
