Option pool planner

About thIS TOOL

It’s important to plan out how you will allocate your option pool. Initially you’ll start with a pool of 10% of your equity but how many options does each person get and how do you calculate that? What percentage does each person get and if you hire another five or 10 or 20 people and add some advisors when does the pool run out?

With this option pool planner, you'll be able to make informed decisions and eliminate common mistakes like running out of options at the wrong time, and having any problems with your board or your investors.
