Product Questions - Functionality: Do you support different vesting schedules for each founder?


Nancy Thanki

Yes, you can set up separate vesting schedules for each founder. Specifically, you can set a different cliff, a total vesting time, and add a double trigger acceleration for each founder’s equity grant. You can also choose to award a percentage of the founder equity up front, in which case these shares will not be subject to vesting. This is often done to reward founders who have put work into the company prior to the incorporation date.

This feature is also available when hiring employees, contractors, and advisors.
