I use AngelList over Carta as my partner because there’s reduced complexity on fund formation and management, which means less work for a solo GP like me.

FAQ

Simple and fast fund migration from Carta to AngelList

We can export, review, and transfer all required information in as little as a week once you grant AngelList access to your fund admin account.

Once you give AngelList access to your fund data, we'll handle everything else, including creating individual accounts for each of your LPs. The only thing they'll need to do is click a link in their welcome email and verify their account.

We provide you with a checklist of fund documents, LP information, and investment data required to complete the migration. Alternatively, you can provide our team with access to your existing fund dashboard to collect these artifacts for you.

We won’t charge you for the years your fund has already been supported. AngelList will prorate our cost to the years your fund has been deployed.
