simple question about equity negotiation
Negotiating with a Google bet. I have a competing startup offer. Google bet also gives stock options so they are similar in that regard. When I told the recruiter my other offer I told him the equity value as the
# of stocks x (latest funding round value - exercise price)
Is that how you communicate the equity or do you just ask for the # of stocks x (latest funding round value)
The difference in this case is 30% so I am wondering if I shot myself in the foot.
