Ep 168: Interview with Matt Stapleton, founder of Capshare
For any entrepreneur that has ever raised capital for their startup and for any investor that has put money into a company you understand the challenges with cap tables. As you add more capital, dilute shareholders, give stock grants and options to employees you changes the cap table for everyone which is where Capshare wants to help. No more excel spreadsheets. No more pulling up old legal documents to reconcile info. Capshare is a web application that helps businesses manage their stock and shareholders in one organized platform. Capshare was started in 2013, has raised $3 million, is based in Utah and is currently hiring engineers and sales people.
In this interview I spoke with Matt Stapleton, co-founder of Capshare about the motivation behind starting this company, what problem are they solving, how have they generated so much traction, the journey to being cash flow positive, what is their marketing strategy and how has it changed over the past few years, what type of content have they had the most success with, what types of clients do they work with, what was their fundraising strategy, what are some of the cap table horror stories he’s heard over the years, what is the long-term goal for Capshare and much more.
