Attracting and retaining the right employees is key to your business plan. You’ve found just the right person - a vice president with stellar credentials and deep connections in your industry, but she makes over $200,000 a year at a Fortune 500 company with full benefits and perks, including a company car! Even if you raise some initial capital, you wouldn’t have sufficient cash on hand to exceed her current salary. How can you lure her away from her current job and keep your equity in the company? Join us for this solutions-oriented talk in which we will discuss practical solutions for compensating key start-up employees.

In this session, attendees will walk away with:

  • A look at compensation basics, with a focus on alternatives to traditional stock options - most of which you’ll be able to put to work immediately

  • A deeper understanding of the current trends in startup employee compensation
