Here at Global Shares, we’re all about making ownership simple, so that’s why we’re delighted to be part of a fantastic new industry initiative that’s focused on simplifying cap table management.
The recently-formed Open Cap Table Coalition comprises of leaders including fintech software providers, major US law firms, VCs, and other critical members of the startup ecosystem. As members, our goal is to take a proactive approach and standardise startup cap table data, so that it’s far more transparent, accessible, and portable for all stakeholders.
As a first step, and with the guidance and inputs of all members, the Coalition will produce a first-of-its-kind Open Cap Table Format. The first edition is scheduled to be released by the end of Q1, 2022.
