Did you know that employees in EU startups own only half as much equity compared to US ones? (10% vs 20% by the time of exit). This is crazy when we know that talent is one of the key driver of Silicon Valley’s success!
Joining a startup is risky, yet too many startups fail to reward their team adequately. Some of this is caused by poor government policy, but there is much more that entrepreneurs can do. ✨
So Index Ventures, one of the most prestigious VC, took the matter into their own hands and wrote a comprehensive guide to stock options for EU startups! Dominic, Head of Talent at Index, will be with us to present their 16 best practices for the next-gen of European startups:
- How much to award to whom?
- When to make grants & how to communicate their potential value?
- How big should your ESOP be?
- What to do about promotions? High performers and leavers?
And many more!
Do yourself (and your team) a favour and learn the best way to attract & retain your best talent
