Carta on Steroids
We’ve been called “Carta on steroids” because our capabilities rocket past what Carta can provide.
We’ve spent time with our early partners listening to real problems they’re facing to develop an equity management system that’s centered on accuracy, control, and accessible expertise.
Solving your equity management isn’t as simple as fixing a spreadsheet–that’s why Shoobx offers the right tools paired with expert guidance, so you get it right, the first time.
What Can You Achieve?

We’ve helped thousands of companies clean up the messes caused by lacking equity management solutions and helped them put streamlined processes in place.
We help you get things in order along the way to your next round so you’re financing-ready at every turn.
Get ownership clarity and have confidence in upcoming transactions.
Shoobx offers the most robust and accurate scenario modeling and pro-forma tools, all based on real-time data from your cap table. We deliver you an accurate, data-based picture of what your next round looks like. That’s confidence in where you stand, and confidence for your lawyer and future investors.
Speed up your next equity financing round.
Shoobx helps you save time when it matters most, and on a daily basis as you grow. Shoobx clients can go from term sheet to close in 14 days. That’s 75% faster than a typical closing. What could your business achieve with that level of efficiency?
How Is Shoobx Different?
Getting documents right the first time means you’ll handle equity financing faster. Shoobx guides you through complex processes step-by-step, links all documents directly to the cap table, and automatically stores them in your data room, a singular hub for all of your documents.
Better manage and monitor your team’s diligence activities with customizable permissioning down to the document level to ensure all of your stakeholders can access everything they need, and only what they need. Shoobx makes it easy to manage stakeholder access at scale.
No one should have to pay extra for expertise. Shoobx not only guides you step-by-step in-platform but also provides an experienced customer success team, led by a former corporate attorney who knows fundraising and due diligence, at every subscription level.

“I inherited Carta – which was fine. But I didn’t like being treated like a sales commission, rather than a startup leader looking for support and expertise. I talked to my team and explored other platforms. We ultimately chose Shoobx. Now I see Shoobx as my trusted advisor that takes a proactive approach to our company and data.”
