Kevin Siskar, Co-Founder of EquityToken, A Blockchain-based Cap Table

When a startup is created, a record is created that shows who has a stake in that company - i.e. equity. This is called a Capitalization or Cap Table. Over time,investments are made in that company, employees are offered stock options and other events change the Cap Table. Managing equity and stock options and keeping a Cap Table current has been a laborious and costly task to manage. To address this, startups have been forming to make this task easier, more transparent and cheaper.

Enter EquityToken. This startup not only digitizes the entire process but also converts that equity into a crypto-token so that transferring the value of that equity can be done easily by a smart contract on a blockchain. Listen to Kevin Siskar explain what lead up to the formation of EquityToken and then take a deep dive into the value of their solution.

You should check out Kevin's Podcast, Ambition Today, for another perspective on the startup scene.
