How are stock options used to reward talent in a startup? How much? Who gets what?
How does this vary between US and Europe? How does ownership evolve over time?
How does dilution impact ownership? What happens if you leave prior to exit?
These and related questions will be answered in an hour-long session with Dominic Jacquesson, VP Insight | VP Talent at Index Ventures, one of the world's leading VC funds.

About Dominic: Across the Index portfolio of 160+ startups, Dominic works with founders on organisational and people issues. This includes building leadership teams, international expansion, compensation, culture, and org design.

Dominic has written three books on scaling startups: Two are guides to international expansion - Expanding into Europe, and Expanding to the US.

The third, Rewarding Talent, has become the playbook for European entrepreneurs using stock options. His web app, OptionPlan, is the go-to tool for designing startup stock option plans.

Before joining Index in 2012, Dominic twice served as a Chief Operating Officer, in both New York and London. He has first-hand experience scaling companies, building teams, managing international operations, and steering company culture through periods of growth, crisis, M&A, and public listings.

Dominic's passion for data drives his decision-making. He's an Oxford grad, with a Masters in organisational psychology, and also an LBS alum, through the Corporate Finance program (a long time ago!).
