    CAP TABLE

    As a founder, you would want to keep your option pool as small as possible in order to maximise the effective valuation of your company, while also retaining the ability to grant options as and when needed. You can always decide to increase your option pool in the future, preferable at each investment round.

    The following tool will help you calculate your cap table and the impact of increasing the size of your option pool.
