Suggestions for amount of equity to grant different levels of new employees
Gordon – how do I access this stock option grant guideline? I can’t download it and the graphic is too small to read.
Sorry about that. There was a missing link to that resource. I just added it, so feel free to try again. Or your should be able to access it using this link: https://shockwaveinnovations.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/Stock-Option-Grant-Guidelines-Shockwave.pptx
How would you modify this for pre-MVP or for founding employees?
Great question. Describing “typical” equity amounts for the founding team is impossible because the variables involved have such a wide range of responses. In other words, one founder might be working 80 hours per week with no compensation while another is working 20 hours per week and needs $2,000/mo in compensation (for whatever reason). As a team of full-time employees ultimately forms, the guidelines and comparisons to other startups start to make sense. Sorry I’m not able to help much more than that.
