  • 1.  Carta's New SAFEs Insights Tool

    Posted 10-20-2023 08:36

    For a founder, the first step of any fundraise is understanding what terms to raise on: how much you should raise, what val cap you should raise on etc. This data isn't easy to find, some of it is wildly conflicting. On our road to building out a magical SAFE transaction experience, Carta is here to do more than just help founders with issuing your SAFEs. We want to help you to complete the whole transaction on Carta: that is PLANNING and executing your round, while leveraging our biggest differentiator: a data set of 38,000 startups and 2 million security holders managing $2.7 trillion in equity.

    The new SAFE Insights tool provides founders personalized insights based on your fundraising stage, industry, and more. You can see standard benchmarks and how your terms are relative to other peer companies. Right now we provide four different types of reports that will help you set your SAFE terms, and most importantly arm you with clear benchmarks while negotiating with your investors. When you're ready you can start issuing SAFEs right away.
