Event description

Description

In this workshop, Fady Hawatmeh will cover equity and incentive arrangements, 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 entrepreneurs. Participants will learn how to structure these provisions for key initial hires, including how to incentivize initial employees, and how investors view capital structure and valuation; key decisions regarding employee incentives include determining if equity or phantom equity is appropriate, the size of the award, and vesting considerations (e.g. whether vesting is time-based, performance-based, or both); incentive equity including stock options in a C-Corp and incentive units (“profits interests”) in an LLC, including a comparison of the two. He'll provide some real-life examples to illustrate the economics at play to help equip entrepreneurs with the tools they need to know.

Fady Hawatmeh is founder and CEO of FADICO, Inc. FADICO was founded to deliver tools and strategies for all types of companies, organizations, and brands looking to scale correctly, optimize operations, and forecast growth.
