Making sense of startup equity

One of the unique aspects of joining a startup is the opportunity to earn equity—it’s an asset class that few have access to, with the potential for large returns. But startup outcomes are highly variable, which means equity value is highly speculative. Since equity is often a large percentage of a startup employee’s salary, we wanted to help make sense of under various scenarios, and how to compare various equity offers.

So we just built a startup equity valuation tool to estimate the value of your current equity options or compare multiple job offers. You can model how much your equity would be worth in various exit scenarios.
