Pulley's mission is to make it easier to start a company. They believe that more startups should be created, and that founder-led companies are more successful in the long term. With Pulley's cap table management tools, companies can better understand and optimize their equity.
Pulley was started because their founders have worked at early stage startups and have found equity confusing. they wanted to help builders and creators grow and own more of their company in the long term. Their team of five engineers have experience from Google, Microsoft, Docker, Pebble, and more based in Mountain View.
