Product Updates

Carta Total Comp

Earlier this year, we announced the release of a new compensation planning tool, Carta Total Comp (CTC). This add-on product allows companies to compare their salary and equity packages to market compensation rates using real-time data, and is available to customers on the Carta base plan for an additional fee. 

Between now and the end of the year, your customer referrals will receive 20% off when they sign up (applies for new business and existing accounts).

COMING SOON: Onboard any client onto Carta on your terms

We’ve heard your feedback that getting new clients directly onto a Carta paid plan can take longer than necessary as it involves going through the traditional sales cycle. To solve for this, many partners have been using the “Launch hack,” in which they onboard companies onto Carta Launch and then upgrade their clients to the paid plan. 

We are working to improve this workflow so you will be able to onboard any account directly (to a free or paid plan) and set up your clients’ cap tables on your own schedule, no matter how much funding the company has raised or how many stakeholders they have.

If you are interested in participating in our beta testing, reach out to

New Equity Platform for LLCs

We recently released a new equity platform for LLC companies. The product solves several key challenges for LLCs in tracking ownership, performing valuations, running exit modelling through a waterfall, centrally managing documents (e.g. K-1s), and completing distributions. The platform also allows PE firms and other institutional investors to monitor each company, see cap tables in real-time, and view their consolidated portfolio. | Learn More
