What is an option pool?


• Option pool gives the right to employees to buy stocks in the future at some pre-determined share price.

• Granted mostly to employees but may include consultants, advisors and board members.

• Option pool is the number of shares reserved for current options granted and expected future options.

• Options are used to motivate employees especially when start-up companies cannot compete with talent from bigger corporates. E.g. Ali Baba vs Microsoft
