Investor Connect Podcast

Hello, this is Hall T. Martin with the Startup Funding Espresso -- your daily shot of startup funding and investing.

Cap Table stands for Capitalization Table and tracks the equity ownership in the company.

This includes the number of shares each one owns and what percentage of the company it represents.

It also lists the total number of shares issued as well as the number of authorized shares by the board.

Your number of shares divided by the total number of shares issued shows your ownership stake.

Each one is listed with a pre-money valuation, what it’s worth before the investment on that round, and post-money valuation, what it’s worth after the investment.

Finally, there’s a price per share.

The Cap Table should list all options, warrants, and convertible notes. Listing all forms of ownership as exercised shows a “fully diluted” Cap Table. 

From the Cap Table, the investor can model out the impact of dilution from future funding rounds.

Thank you for joining us for the Startup Funding Espresso where we help startups and investors connect for funding.

Let’s go startup something today.
