Taking stock: How to get equity schemes right

Wed 16 Mar 2022 / 12:30 (GMT), 13:30 (CET)

About the event

As the war for talent heats up, European startups are offering more equity to employees. Stock options can incentivise employees to stick along for the ride, so what are the building blocks of a successful scheme? This Sifted Talks will explore how startups can help their day ones get a share of the future spoils — and how staff can know their worth.

We'll be discussing

  1. Setting up a share scheme: What does good — and bad — look like?
  2. Slicing up the pie: How generous should founders be? Should you let your employees cash out early?
  3. Route to riches: How can employees negotiate a potentially life-changing equity package?
