Startup Employment Agreements: What Are You People Signing?
You and your investors should share a mutual goal of designing an employment offer that will retain you for as long as the business needs you and protects your stake in the business you've created when (and if) it's time for you to leave. That's it.
So here's what we're going to do: May 26, if you're in Toronto, come on by for lunch and we'll take you through OFFERS 101 - how to draft them (if you're a start-up employer), how to negotiate them (if you're an employee), and how to blunt the impact of terms when one party won't budge. Send me a note if you're interested and I'll provide details (time, room) later.
