As a startup, we have at some point of time, promised shares, stock options or sweat equity to consultants, advisors, mentors. But then when it comes to implementing the promise, we find ourselves in a fix. So many factors to consider:

  1. Dilution of existing shareholders;
  2. Cluttering of cap table;
  3. Granting shares below fair market value to an advisor who is a non-resident, etc.

Well, while stock options are the most common structure for granting stock incentives, one needs to consider alternate structures to mitigate the above mentioned issues.

A detailed master class on structuring Stock Incentives and understand measures of Advisory Stock Options, Phantom Shares, Partly Paid up Shares, etc.
