Round of the Week – DocuSign

And the award for the most crowded Cap Table of the week goes to…

crowded table

DocuSign board meeting?

Electronic signature platform DocuSign raised a whopping $85M this week (rumored at a valuation of $1.6B) to expand growth and innovation. This brings their total funding to $210M and their investor count to about the same… Seriously though, they did not name the investors this round, but according to their Crunchbase profile, they have at least 10 different investors in the round (holy syndicate Batman!).  What we would give to see the evolution of the Cap Table since inception…

Name: DocuSign

Website: https://www.docusign.com/

Funding to Date: $210M (reports vary, but had main rounds of $27M, $55M, and $85M among other smaller ones)

Deal Notables:  CFO Mike Dinsdale is on record as saying they are not a takeover target but rather an IPO candidate.  He claimed they couldn’t be valued properly because they span so many verticals. He definitely has a point given that they have the ability to disrupt almost every market in existence (i.e. anything that requires a signature…). Makes us wonder that if $1.6B was the value for the round, what was the associated TAM for E-signatures and DocuSign’s corresponding market share expectation?  $16B and 10%, $8B and 20%??
