Equity Compensation Basics for Startups

Our workshop equity compensation basics was on February 11, 2013 at Eastside Incubator in Redmond, our regular venue.  We had a full house with 40 people in attendance.  The following topics were discussed:

  • What is the difference between founder restricted stock and employee stock options?
  • Why is it so important to issue founder restricted stock as early as possible?
  • How much company stock should be reserved for stock options?
  • Why do companies that give equity compensation need to understand IRS Rule 409A?
  • Can LLCs grant stock options?
