Option Pool Shuffle

The option pool - the amount of options to be allocated to future employees - lowers your effective valuation. E.g. your effective pre-money valuation is not $8M but $6M, if 25% of the $8M is allocated to new options. The option pool only affects common stock. VH recommends using a hiring plan to determine what the appropriate size of an option pool should be.
