Among startups receiving a new 409a valuation in Q3 2022, two-thirds were flat or down in valuation from the previous appraisal. The trend in falling 409a valuations has left many startup leaders needing to explain how employees’ equity comp may be impacted. Navigating this conversation with your team can be difficult, and it’s important to provide accurate, adequate information to employees – while still being mindful of company morale.
Join us on January 24th at 10am PT / 1pm ET for a leadership training in managing employee comms during turbulent times. A brief Q&A session will follow.
During this session, you’ll learn:

- How a lower 409a valuation may present a silver lining for employees with equity awards
- Insights into how other startups are reacting to trends in lower valuations
