1 Million Cups: Introduction to Cap Tables
January 18 from 8:30 am to 10:00 am
Join us for a special workshop lead by ISA Ventures General Partner Eric Engelmann. Eric will be discussing capitalization tables — cap tables, for short — specifically, understanding how ownership changes with investors.
Bringing on cofounders or investors in a business is a momentous decision. The result of those decisions can be significant. Founders who want to do this must understand how a capitalization table works. A cap table is “a chart typically used by startups to show ownership stakes in the business. It lists your company’s securities (i.e., stock, options, warrants, etc.), how much investors paid for them, and each investor’s percentage of ownership in the company” (source: Cap Tables: The Startup Founder’s Guide). In this workshop, we’ll share a very simple template that you can take home to help you understand the impact of your decision to give equity in your company to anyone else — a cofounder or an investor.
If you’re a founder, investor, or simply curious, don’t miss this!

About 1 Million Cups Cedar Rapids
The Kauffman Foundation developed 1 Million Cups (1MC) on the notion that entrepreneurs discover solutions and network over a million cups of coffee. We welcome early-stage businesses and established companies facing interesting challenges to present their companies. Typically, one or several representatives present before a panel of experts. They seek advice and then engage the audience in a question-and-answer session to encourage collaborative and honest conversations. We also feature expert speakers, founder fireside interviews, and explorations of business failures and the lessons learned!
The Cedar Rapids chapter is the sixth in the U.S., and events take place almost every Wednesday. Every event is free, and everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend!
Join us Wednesdays @ 8:30 a.m. at The Olympic Theater South Side (1202 3rd St SE #200, Cedar Rapids, IA 52401)! Each event features a presentation or conversation with a new founder, entrepreneur, business leader, subject matter expert, or creative. Find a list of upcoming events and presenters on our Calendar.
We update events as new information is available, so check the calendar often!
