Show Notes

What should you look for when you first receive an ISO grant?

In this episode, Aaron and Trishul discuss what you should look for when you begin working for a pre-IPO company and receive a grant of Incentive Stock Options. AMT isn't a concern just yet, but your investment risk is significant. Between QSBS and 83b elections, there are a few critical actions you can take right away. But most of the time, a "wait-and-see" approach will work just as well.
