I'm an early employee in a startup and 100% vested. I've been in the company long enough to start thinking about my next career step (MBA maybe), but I do wish it the best of success and I'll be leaving on good terms. Its likely that the startup will get acquired in the next 1-2 years.
- If the startup gets acquired, what are the implications to the shares that I own and their value?
- Is there any possibility of some acquisition stipulation that would discriminate between current employees and ex-employees?
In other words, should I try to stick with the startup until we get acquired? One of the main reasons we join startups is for an eventual payback, right? I don't want to lose out on that after all the time/work I've put in.
Thanks folks! hungryhumble
