Vauban, founded by Rémy Astié and Ulric Musset, provides venture capitalists and angel investors with a platform for easier fundraising, syndicate creation, and investment management.
The platform allows users to efficiently establish Funds and SPVs in various global investment jurisdictions, reducing both time and costs. It covers everything from structuring to legal documentation, investor onboarding, and reporting within a unified platform.
This automation makes it accessible for Syndicate leads and fund managers of all sizes, enabling a wider range of people from different locations to invest in startups.
Key changes after the rebranding
Remy Astie, Founder of Vauban and Senior Director at Carta, says, “It is a day with mixed emotions but another step forward on our mission to deliver the most powerful global private markets platform.”
Vauban.io now redirects to Carta.com, consolidating their products and services. Social media accounts have also switched to Carta branding, reflecting a unified global brand strategy.
Astie mentions that Carta’s primary offering for investors outside the US, the Vauban platform, is set to be fully integrated into Carta’s website over the next few months. However, products for the UK and EU markets will continue to be managed by a global team based in London.
“The end result is powerful; a fully combined global suite of fund and SPV formation and administration solutions available from a single login and powered with real-time cap table data from Carta and Capdesk,” adds Astie.
Carta says it is bringing its services, on par with those used in Silicon Valley and the wider US ecosystem, to Europe. The company is enthusiastic about this expansion into the European market.
