Workshop 1: CapTable Setup & Analytics

  • As a Private company, we all know one of the most important reporting items is our Capitalization Table.
  • Once you have confidence in your Cap Table and the data it reports, the next item that follows shortly thereafter is the ability to use this data for liquidity events and next funding round analytics.
  • This session is designed to teach you how to navigate creating and updating your Cap Table and then using this data in conjunction with our Cap Table Analytics functionality.
