A thriving startup needs two essentials: capital and great people which is why it is important you understand the benefits of cap tables and employee share option plans (ESOPs):

  • a cap table helps you track and manage capital raising rounds; and

  • an ESOP helps you to attract and retain great people to your business.

In this free webinar presented by LegalVision Chris Bambury (Head of Finance) and Sophie Mao (Senior Lawyer) will explain:

Cap Tables

  • What is a cap table and why is it useful?

  • How to use a cap table for an equity round

  • Share classes and convertible instruments

  • How to use a cap table (live demo).

ESOPs

  • What is an ESOP and when is it used?

  • Standard terms in an ESOP

  • How to value options/shares

  • Key things to consider

You can also download LegalVision's free cap table template ahead of the webinar.

Following the webinar, there will be a live Q&A. If you are unable to make it, you can still register and we will send you a copy of the recording.
