with 401k and other good benifits like medical free food ...

b series startup verbal offer

base $170 k
bonus $30 k
intial 10000 stocks ( not sure about the value)

no 401k , they have medical benifit.
but they conveyed they are open for negotiation.

    What stage is the startup at?

    I’d likely price the equity at 0 but that depends on the stage. I’m concerned your offer is too low.

      You’re not alone, mate. For most of us it’s difficult. Mind set has to change.

      You can do it!
