Carta was founded in 2012 to help private companies manage their cap table by eliminating spreadsheets and paper certificates. They've since expanded to valuations, compliance, investors services, and tools and services for public companies. They’ve worked with nearly half a million shareholders, but this is just the beginning. Carta’s mission is to create more owners; to map and expand the ownership graph, democratizing ownership in the process; to reduce income inequality by expanding the ownership of productive assets; to pull more wage-earners out of the debt stack and into the equity stack.
