Cap Table

A capitalization table (or "cap table") is a simple spreadsheet that lists all the owners of your company, their percentage ownership in the company, and their equity. It can be used to determine how much ownership each shareholder has and what it would be worth if the business is sold. It also helps you calculate different scenarios for raising new funding rounds or acquisitions.

The cap table is one of the most valuable tools for venture-backed companies because it enables them to keep track of investor dilution over time by showing how much ownership each shareholder has in relation to others at any given time.
