Equity & Incentives for Founders, Employees & Investors

Thu, December 13, 2018 9:30 AM – 11:00 AM

Equity and other incentives are often an important tool for building a startup’s management team and retaining key employees. But like any tool, it must be properly used to work for, rather than against innovators.

Join this workshop to learn how to:

  • Structure provisions for key initial hires
  • Determine vesting considerations and size of employee incentives
  • Know what investors expect in terms of capital structure and valuation
  • Compare stock options
