Clean up your cap table

No more chasing down investor signatures. SAFE Cleanups retroactively clean up the SAFEs already on the cap table so companies get faster equity rounds and lower administrative costs.


How SAFE Cleanups work

Each direct SAFE means more administrative overhead and greater risk of delay during an equity financing.

With SAFE Cleanups, companies can optimize their cap table while preserving the economic rights of their SAFE investors.

The SAFE Cleanup Agreement contains a limited purpose power of attorney and a voting agreement that allows the company to sign conversion documents as long as the SAFE is converting according to its terms.

The result is effortless SAFE conversions during an equity round for both founders and investors.

Seamless setup

Clean up your SAFEs in 3 steps

Share your existing SAFEs

Tell us about your company and existing SAFE investors. The more SAFE investors you have, the more time and money you can save.

  • Works for any previously signed SAFEs

  • No capital contribution limits or restrictions

  • Works with international investors

Invite SAFE investors to sign

Easily invite your previous SAFE investors to sign the SAFE Cleanup Agreement through AngelList. AngelList helps you keep track of the process and follow up with investors.

  • Replaces e-signature tools like DocuSign

  • Signed document storage built into the cap table

  • Track investors’ signature status and easily follow up

Enjoy a cleaner cap table

Now you can sign conversion documents as long as the SAFEs are converting according to their terms. The result is lower overhead for both founders and investors.

For companies with their cap table on AngelList, “cleaned up” SAFEs appear as one row on AngelList’s cap table so founders can view their cap table through the lens of required approvals.

With the AngelList Growth + plan, SAFE Cleanups, RUVs, and cap table work together to optimize cap table and equity management.

  • For the best results, combine SAFE Cleanups with AngelList cap table

  • No-fee migrations to AngelList cap table from any cap table provider


Flexible pricing

Move your cap table to AngelList

The Growth plan (and above) includes unlimited SAFE cleanups, 409A valuations, and more, but requires that you maintain an active cap table on AngelList Equity.

Everything you
need to know

No, you can use SAFE Cleanups without using AngelList’s cap table, but founders that combine SAFE Cleanups with AngelList Equity get a cleaner cap table. “Cleaned up” investors appear as one cap table row that you can easily expand for a more in-depth view.

We recommend using SAFE Cleanups at least a few weeks in advance of your first equity round to ensure a smooth fundraise.

Yes, leading venture funds have signed the SAFE Cleanup Agreement.

Executing a SAFE Cleanup Agreement does not impact QSBS eligibility. There is no transfer of ownership and any QSBS benefits would still apply. Please note that while the IRS has not qualified their position on either QSBS or SAFEs, some SAFEs may have a clause that outlines that for tax purposes, the SAFE is to be treated as Common Stock.
