Equity for Services

Perhaps you’ve heard about David Choe, who painted Facebook headquarters in exchange for stock that is now worth more than $500 million.  Or perhaps you are starting a company and prefer to pay your collaborators in equity rather than cash.

Incentive compensation can be a powerful way to build a company or motivate employees.  The question is what form of equity is right for you or your business?  What is the difference between stock, options, and stock-equivalents?  How do you create equity incentives for an LLC?

Some of the biggest mistakes are made during what seems like a simple transaction – trading equity for services.  We help entrepreneurs and service providers avoid mistakes by structuring equity incentives right the first time.
