A Cap Table template can assist in understanding the impact of different investment tools on a company's control by visualizing how control changes over time. It includes a Timeline tab that shows these changes and a Dashboard that displays the evolution of the ownership structure between investors and founders. The template breaks down investment rounds from Pre-seed to Series C and incorporates various investment tools like SAFE notes and Convertible notes. This way, it provides a clear picture of how different investment tools can affect a company's control.

Several factors can influence the control and ownership structure of a company. These include the company's financial performance, the industry in which it operates, the regulatory environment, the company's strategic goals, and the personal preferences of the company's founders and investors. Changes in these factors can lead to changes in the company's control and ownership structure.
