    Carta is perfect for any sized organization when shares and stock options are in the picture for new/seasoned employees alike. If a company does not provide these benefits to employees, it may not be the best fit for them unless there are other value-adds the tool can provide in other areas.

    • The ability to make and import lists and save searches is helpful for customizing the software to your particular needs.
    • The web and mobile app data that Crunchbase offers is very helpful to gauge trends and interest in companies for diligence purposes.

    Cons

    Crunchbase Inc.

    • Notifications - Something similar to TweetDeck would be nice, so that when news breaks it could be an immediate fact.
    • Honestly dont add too much because you don't want it to become more of a social tool with cluttered info, keep it straight to the point.

    • Still some issues with the auto-generated Excel file for stock calculations that required correction by technical support.
    • Could offer integration into accounting platforms or HR/payroll platforms to further cut down on manual input.
    • It should allow for custom user creation to allow for varying levels of access based on role in the company; currently, all security roles in the platform are out of the box without any modification allowed.

      Crunchbase Inc.

      They give standard answers. They are not a customer first business. I tried to cancel my subscription after using it for only 1 week as we found the information was outdated and not at all useful. But they would not cancel the year long subscription I mistakenly signed up for

      Every time I have sent a message to Carta's support team, they've responded within 2 business days. The support team is very helpful and always has answered my questions competently and professionally. Many of my questions have also been answered through their extensive support articles. Carta makes available a lot of information that has helped reduce te administrative work of answering questions for our employees as they are able to get most of the information they need through Carta's website.

      Alternatives Considered

      Crunchbase Inc.

      Crunchbase is definitely bottom of the barrel in this space. At similar pricing models, all competitors I have tried have significantly bigger and more updated databases. Crunchbase may have been great sometime in the past, but they are not worth engaging now.

      I was not personally involved in choosing Carta over any other platforms. However, I can say I'm very happy with Carta. Carta allows for a central place to manage stock options from multiple companies and is extremely user-friendly and intuitive. With Carta being a market leader, it's nice to find new employers already using it as well.

      Return on Investment

      Crunchbase Inc.

      • Crunchbase has been great and given us a lot of new companies to go after that have received funding and turned into great meetings. We do not pay a ton, so the ROI is great.
      • We have nothing but positive results using Crunchbase and rely on it heavily for prospecting.
      • It might add more value if we get a more expensive or advanced version.

      • If a company's cap table is wrong that is legally considered fraud ( yes, a capital F fraud ), as in there could be criminal repercussions, and almost assuredly whatever transaction that requires it to be accurate will be canceled.
      • Compliance is a major factor when it comes to having a stock option plan. Carta is the best I've seen at keeping a company in compliance.
