Carta allows companies and the law firms that serve them to issue electronic securities and maintain accurate cap tables. Our electronic securities capture important data like vesting schedules, price per share, liquidation preferences, and more.

That security holder can create a free portfolio on Carta, which they can log in to at any time to view their security's details, track their vesting (if applicable), and download or print the documents associated with the security.
