What Are the Critical Things Investors Look for in a Startup?

Welcome to the cap table spreadsheet. This is for all investors who buy and sell Cap stocks. For many investors, cap-table or cap-tie is one of the first things they learn when they invest with the brokerage firm. It means the end of the year when you receive your dividend check. This spreadsheet is used to track dividends received from all the Cap stocks you own. Here's how it works.

Every year you invest with your brokerage, the company adds the cost of capital to the cost of each stock you own and reports it to your income statement. Now you have a line showing the cost of equity dilution to be reported on quarterly basis. This is called the Cap Table.

Now I want to explain one more thing about the Cap table spreadsheet. The cost of equity dilution is figured as a percentage of total share outstanding. So the lower the percentage the less your dividend. The highest valued companies are typically paying out a larger dividend. But don't worry investors, this doesn't mean that you can't pay out more than the cap table.

All you need to do is make sure you add up the total shares outstanding for every class of stock you own as indicated in your cap table spreadsheet and divide by the number of classes or stocks owned. Then just look at your profit and loss statement and compare the profits of each class of stocks to the average cost of capital per share. That will tell you how many shares to buy or sell to help you maximize your profits.

It's a little more complicated than that but not really. If you want to be an aggressive investor then it's probably not necessary to use a cap table spreadsheet. But if you want to be conservative and just play it safe then you'll probably want to use one. Remember though, that you always want to buy low and sell high. No matter what kind of spreadsheet you use, it's just a tool to help you decide what to do with your money. The ultimate decision is up to you.

There's one more advantage to using cap tables. Small startups can actually use them to pick and choose which issues they want to invest in. This means that they'll be more likely to pick companies that are already profitable.

Remember too that there are two ways to calculate these prices. Some use period end cap prices while others use price to book ratios. Unfortunately the latter are lagging indicators and so aren't particularly useful for startups . So the bottom line is, these are all important, but they can be quite difficult to interpret manually. If you're going to use a cap table, then this is something you'll need a good software tool to help you out with.

Finally, cap tables are only as good as their users. Don't expect to jump right into one and start using it to invest your money. Even though it's free, if you have no idea what you're doing, then it's a waste of time. Instead, use a manual spreadsheet that you can access online. It's much easier to update and make sense of, and it gives you up-to-date information on critical issues for up-to-date startup investments.

There are plenty of tools that are meant to automate the process of doing cap tables. However, unless you want to take on the project of manually creating them, they're not really worth your time. For starters, they're all going to be proprietary so they're not available publicly (although if you want to give them away, they're easily copiable). This means you won't have access to the real numbers and you won't be able to adjust the calculations to suit your specific goals.

Cap table spreadsheet tools are a better alternative if you want to create exit scenarios for your startup. These can be customized to show just the optimistic and pessimistic scenarios you should consider in terms of potential exit. This helps investors focus on the risk/reward ratio, making it easier for them to determine which scenarios are more likely to result in success.

Finally, remember to consider exit before looking at growth. If you think your company grows fast enough and will soon be valued in the market, investors will likely be unwilling to buy. However, if you have a clear picture of how much equity you'll need within a year or two, investors may be willing to buy in order to ensure that you don't run out of runway. A cap table spreadsheet can help you get this growth into the picture. By combining it with other tools, such as a startup calculator or an equity growth calculator, you'll be able to determine which aspects of the business will be most critical to investors.
