A fully customizable excel cap table template ๐Ÿ’ป for startups ๐ŸŒŸ of all stages to use when raising capital ๐Ÿ“ˆ

At the Collaboration and Project Management Software Startup, Wimi ( I am notably in charge of Investor Relations and handling the fundraising process. ๐Ÿ’ฒ

Keeping an eye ๐Ÿ‘€ on the global equity split each year๐Ÿ“…, especially when past investors decide to reinvest, was a challenge, so I used an excel cap table to monitor the global picture. ๐ŸŒŽ๐Ÿ–ผ

Knowing that this is a challenge for many entrepreneurs ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ’ผ and Venture Capitalists ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ’ผ, I decided to publish this cap table for others to use and build upon. ๐Ÿ—๐Ÿ‘ทโ€โ™€๏ธ

This model is comprised ofโžก 6 tabs enabling you to successfully model ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐ŸŽ‰ your fundraising and cap table structure throughout the life of your startup๐ŸŒŸ.

As of May 2017, Wimi has successfully already raised 2,5M โ‚ฌ in 7 rounds using this Excel Cap Table. ๐Ÿ’ฐ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

Hope this can be useful for you! ๐Ÿ˜Š

    I am willing to donate if this fits my need. It's been a long time since I had to do this, but does the spreadsheet automatically calculate the number of shares and percentages give the investment dollars and anti-dilution requirements? As I remember that is a complicated iterative process.
