Retain your best workers with fractionalized equity.
These days gig workers can easily jump ship to work for your competitors.
Oftentimes before their shares become liquid, team members must buy stock options in order to obtain equity at their company. In order to make joining the team even marginally appealing to team members, 409a valuations force companies to undervalue themselves. RSUs act as a kind of IOU for future stock, eliminating the requirement for a 409a and giving team members the opportunity to join immediately without forcing them to pay in advance.
Upstock makes RSUs accessible for all, including gig companies. at any stage. We spent years working with legal experts from top international firms to automate the time-consuming and costly process of creating great equity plans. We believe that all companies regardless of size or budget should be able to offer their team the best equity plan possible.
Equity feels real and fair when stakeholders can see it. Upstock equity offers real-time equity visualization for all team members, creating excitement and a sense of personal investment in the company's success.
