Founder Vesting | VentureFizz

Founder Vesting | VentureFizz: "front vesting from VC type investors.  My experience is that for many startups in which the founders have invested some sweat, investors will give you some credit in the form of fully vested stock.  So, a typical arrangement (again depending on the facts) might be 10% to 25% fully vested at the Series Seed (or Series A, as the case may be) closing with the remaining amount vesting ratable on a monthly basis over three years.

(3)  The notion of a “cliff” seems out of place for founders who have been working on a startup for some months (or longer).

(4)  I see a lot of so-called double triggers (as opposed to full acceleration upon a sale).  So, sometimes you see everything that is unvested vest upon a sale (a liquidity event other than an IPO).  "
