Event description
Understanding equity incentives is essential to attract the talent you need and to educate them on the financial side of entrepreneurship.

About this Event

Sharing capital is a standard in the startup culture but do we really understand how it works?

In theory yes, but in practice not so much.

Indeed, when comes the time to face some simple questions such as:

  • Which tool should I use to share the capital with my employees (stock options, phantom shares...)?
  • How to communicate equity to my team?
  • When do we have to sign the contracts and which contracts by the way?
  • How it works when an employee is leaving?

The answers are not so obvious to both entrepreneurs and employees... And it does not matter whether the company is early or mature.

This is why we have gathered experts, entrepreneurs and VC to chat about this strategic topic!

We are thrilled to welcome such a great panel:

➡️Dominic Jacquesson, VP Talent at Index Ventures, by far the best expert on the topic in Europe will share will share his experience and give great insits on how startups of his portfolio share their equity with their employees.

➡️Christian Gabriel, co-founder & CEO at Capdesk, will explain what is a captable and why it is so important to track it and keep it clean.

➡️Ian Shaw, Head of UK Employee Share Schemes & Incentives at Orrick, will give us a clear view on the technical aspects regarding the implementation of such incentives in the UK and how you could implement it internationally.

➡️Florent Artaud, CEO & co-founder of Ekwity, will first give the basics you need to understand the topic before moderating the panel.

Join us to get practical info and concrete insights based on their experience and expertise.

See you there!
