About this talk

If you want to get real talent in the door, you have to be ready to pay. For startups without the means to match the salary offers of larger companies, this usually means offering equity as a means of wooing top-level talent. But as a founder what should you offer and how do you assess the trade-off between base salary and equity?

Join Ben Hron of law firm McCarter & English and Pierre-Loïc Assayag, Founder and CEO at Traackr, to explore how to craft a fair offer according to your funding stage, the position you’re hiring for, and talent expectations.

We’ll consider: -How do you ensure an offer is fair and competitive without offering too much of your company?
-How do you decide on the right “mix” of salary and equity?
-How much of your company should you “give away” as incentive compensation?

This event is part of the Founder Track for Startup Boston Week 2020. This event is perfect for idea-stage and early-stage companies.
