What Startup Employees Should Know About Their Equity 

Wednesday, August 15th from 6:00 - 7:30 pm

M. Adam Oliveri, Managing Director, Private Company Market

Startup employees are often issued equity or stock options as part of their compensation package.  This is a great financial incentive for employees, especially if they think their startup will be the next Facebook or LinkedIn.  However, especially on the east coast, many employees are unfamiliar with the mechanics of their options and do not understand the key equity compensation concepts that all startup employees should know.  Join Adam Oliveri, Managing Director at SecondMarket, as he discusses the value of your equity and options.  This class will provide a practical overview of the basics, such as strike price and grant sizing, and touch on more advanced topics, such as vesting and dilution.  Current or prospective startup employees should not miss this one.
