Problem

Sharing fund performance with LPs

M13 works with a broad base of LPs that includes influential people like Sir Richard Branson and Arianna Huffington. They also incubate ideas into sustainable consumer companies both independently and with partners such as Procter & Gamble Ventures.

M13 needs to communicate accurate and timely information to their vast network of LPs. They needed a better way to report on fund performance and share results with their LPs.

Streamlined communication with Carta’s LP portal

With the combination of software and people at Carta, M13 is able to successfully execute on their strategy of having a broad base of LPs. Communication is streamlined and fund accounting is taken care of, so their time is freed up to focus on important projects like SPVs and IPOs.
