Are you lucky? Or just consistent?
It can be easy to look at someone successful and assume their path was easier than yours. Just remember that under the surface is countless hours of work, sleepless nights, and many failures. What looks like luck is often just consistency.
“Take a moment to stop and appreciate all that you have accomplished, and all that you have yet to do.

Tomas Milar, Founder of Eqvista
One of the first things an investor will ask for is your cap table. If yours is still in a manual spreadsheet, it's time for an upgrade.
Eqvista is a centralized, automated platform for tracking and managing equity. But it's much more than a cap table...
With tools ranging from valuation services, secondary stock transactions, to financial modeling, Eqvista is a one-stop shop for equity and businesses filing needs.

Since its creation in 2018, Eqvista has onboarded over 9,000 companies to the platform. They currently add ~350 each month!
But despite all this growth, they still offer a personal touch:
