Owning your stock options during a career transition
The Great Resignation is still underway. The markets are volatile. Valuations are dropping, and IPOs are delayed. It’s a dizzying time for startups – and your stock options, too. But now is not the time to give up on your equity. Quite the opposite. Now is the best time to put a plan together and make sure that you are prepared for an eventual IPO.
