Designed For:

Non-executive employees of VC or PE-backed private US-based C-corporations who are receiving equity as part of their compensation. 



This screen is crafted to identify and highlight key terms that are commonly used in employee stock option agreements by private C-corporations in the United States. Its primary objective is to provide users with a quick and accurate tool to spot any unfavorable terms. This screen was crafted against NVCA standard equity plan agreements as well as Delaware General Corporation Law.


Limitations, Assumptions, Details:

This Screen was validated against 5 different employee stock option agreements and produced an average accuracy of 100%. This screen should be used with a lawyer, not in replacement of a lawyer. Neither Screens nor any screen author is or will provide you with legal advice. AI accuracy rates vary based on several factors so always double-check all AI predictions.
