Negotiating Equity: A Best Practice Guide for Founders and Their Future Team

Distributing equity makes it possible for founders, investors, employees, and other contributors to own a piece of the company they are building.

Equity plays an especially important role in the startup community, with billions of dollars being converted into company equity every year. With equity, you can generate significantly more wealth and with skin in the game, be more motivated at work too.

Negotiating equity has a direct impact on a company’s ability to grow. With a functional equity distribution plan, all parties involved will feel valued and committed to ensuring the company succeeds. On the other hand, a poorly crafted equity plan can lead to internal conflict and introduce a variety of financial hardships.

The knowledge of negotiating equity can be universally beneficial, especially in a competitive startup ecosystem. No matter what the economic turbulence we’re facing today, be it the rise of inflation or an impending recession, the fundamentals of equity negotiation remain the same. And with today’s startups competing to attract and retain the best talent in a hot job market, understanding the ins and outs of equity has never been more beneficial for founders and new team members. In this guide, we will discuss the most important things to know about the equity negotiation process for founders and the talent looking to join them. 

For the founders, newcomers, and other members of a startup, creating a functional equity structure will be very important. Equity can help attract top talent, promote company loyalty, enable growth, and help the entire organization achieve its goals. When all parties involved can understand the importance of negotiating and distributing equity, startups will find themselves well-positioned to succeed.
