About Event

Hiring to scale your company beyond the founding team is an exciting inflection point for a startup. Prior to establishing your Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) it is in the founder’s best interest to do the math and estimate how much equity to set aside for new employees. 

Option pools can affect everything from how much of your company you retain to your company’s effective valuation, so it’s important to be strategic. In this webinar we will cover:

  • What is an option pool

  • Why do I need one and how it can be leveraged

  • Why sizing your option pool correctly is important

  • What to consider when sizing your option pool
