Single Trigger Acceleration

A single-trigger acceleration is a full or partial acceleration of vesting that happens based on a single event triggering someone to earn stock or vest their options in the company. The term trigger refers to the event itself that could potentially accelerate vesting, for example, a company buyout. Key executives and founders commonly negotiate into their agreement for equity that they will be entitled to a form of vesting acceleration should a triggering event occur.
