WHAT IS EQUITY, AND HOW DOES IT WORK?

Equity is compensation that allows employees the opportunity to become part owners of the companies they work for. This system regularly rewards people who maintain longevity as employees and sometimes can result in significant cash payouts. This is especially true for employees of successful startup companies, whose company value may see considerable growth over time. Equity can be a great way to reward employees for their hard work and dedication, and it can also be a powerful retention tool. For companies looking to attract and retain top talent, equity may be worth considering as part of their compensation packages.

NEGOTIATE.

Once you’ve found a startup you’re interested in, the next step is negotiating your equity stake. This can be done through an equity crowdfunding platform or the startup itself. The important thing is to make sure that you’re getting a fair deal for your investment. It would be best if you also had a clear understanding of the company’s business model and its growth potential.
