Anytech (Asian-Americans in NY Tech)

Working in the start up world, we are all presented with equity and options. How can we as employees take advantage of the options that are presented and how should we as founders design the package for our extended team? We will provide an overview on startup options/ equity and delve into specific cases and look at liquidity options (including EquityZen & secondary marketplaces). This is a confusing topic that applies to almost all startup employees so we will also take questions from the audience during the event as well. Feel free to post them in the wall of the event for a head start.
