Employee Options

Great way to motivate a team. It works simply: the founder promises to give the employee shares if he or she works in the company for a certain time or reaches the KPI. Sometimes employees are given not shares, but some virtual shares - a "phantom option". If the value of the company rises, then the employee will be able to sell their "live" or virtual shares. If the company becomes profitable, then the employee can continue to own shares and receive dividends on them or on their equivalent in the form of a phantom option.
