Investor Updates

Carta Investor Updates allows you to send communications from the Carta platform to investors, employees, and other stakeholders on the cap-table easily through the Carta platform. We give you the tools you compose a mixed media update and attach all relevant files. Our financials templates are great for companies who are looking for guidance on what is important to investors. Recipients of the update will receive a notification and they will be able to access the update from their Carta portfolio. Companies sending update can also keep track who has viewed updates.

Investor Updates is now available to companies in the Growth and Enterprise plans. You can access more help content for this feature here.

Acceptance Flow - Email Screen

We have introduced a new page for users accepting a security via email. You can now check if you have an account before acceptance. We’ve further improved this process and enabled users to accept a new security with an existing Carta account.

How? You will be prompted after clicking through on the email invite.

If the email exists, you can login and accept your new security in your Tasks.

We improved the process of setting up the password when account is being created. Carta now instantly shows how strong is the password and gives recommendations on how to improve it.

Tender Offers: sell order UI refresh

We’ve made some UI improvements to the sell order submission workflow in the Tender Offer product:

  • There is a new customizable intro page companies can use to communicate important information with sellers
  • We’ve switched from a single-page sell order to a multi-step workflow. This includes a new navigation tracker on the left-hand side that shows sellers where they are in the process
  • Sellers can save at each step so they don’t have to complete their order in one sitting
  • We’ve also leveraged the Carta Platform team’s _ink components for a more streamlined look and feel
