Capdesk allows you to sign new grant agreements electronically (using DocuSign). You can see the different types of equity we can provide online signing for below:

2) Online option exercise

You can allow your optionholders to exercise their options on Capdesk.

Please note we currently only support exercise for UK based companies and their optionholders.

Our online exercise feature is still in Beta development so the process may change and develop over time.
