The founder's guide to share option schemes

Had a great idea, started building your tech and found some like-minded visionaries to join you on your journey to create the next Irish unicorn? Find out why a share option scheme should be the next point on your agenda.

The startup's not-so secret weapon

Against the background of a very competitive job market and salary inflation, founders have to look at alternative ways to attract and keep talent.

Rewarding your team with share options means everyone can share in your company’s financial success. It’s the best way to give everyone a real incentive to help take your idea all the way through to an exit.

Answers to your options questions

Option schemes don’t need to be complex and expensive. They just need to be planned properly.
