I will be very short. Creating a captable (capitalization table) can be long and I did not find any good template. So you will find the one I did for my startup, Kombo.
It will be useful for the following steps:
- Founding : splitting the shares between founders or late founders
- Pre-Seed or Seed round : this can be a fundraising tour with Business Angels, Friends and Family.
- Convertible Notes : this fundraising is typically done to prepare the Serie A, with current investors or new investors.
- Serie A : this fundraising is done typically with Venture Capital funds, usually called VCs.
So I have chosen to put this captable, which is a short version of the word capitalization table, in open source. You can use it and share it. Just book your next bus or train tickets on Kombo and give us 5 stars on the stores.
You will find in Google Sheets the captable spreadsheet template.
