ZenEquity has joined Carta to help us drive global equity ownership at companies of all sizes. 

ZenEquity is the leading employee stock ownership plan (ESOP) management company in India, with nearly half of the country’s unicorns on its platform. Founded and led by Sharat Khurana—who himself was the CFO of India’s first unicorn—ZenEquity has unparalleled expertise in one of the fastest-growing regions for venture investment. 

By combining Carta’s scale and suite of products with ZenEquity’s deep knowledge and expertise in the Indian venture ecosystem, we can provide equity solutions for private companies of all sizes—across India and globally. Together, we’ll be able to realize our shared vision of more equity owners in more places. India is the third-largest market behind the U.S. and China in terms of unicorn count—investors deployed $38.5 billion of capital into the country’s venture ecosystem in 2021. 

As we build out Carta in India, ZenEquity customers will have access to the suite of Carta’s services—including cap table management, valuations, and financial reporting. To help support companies from the very beginning, we’ll be offering the platform for free to early-stage companies domiciled in India. 

Thank you to Sharat and the entire ZenEquity team, and to the customers and early supporters who believed in this vision. This team is so impressive. They have grown fast to become a leader in the equity management space with a small (but mighty) team. Their success is rooted in their relentless focus on the customer experience, resourcefulness, and tenacity. These are traits we admire and encourage at Carta, and we can’t wait to see what we build together.
