<aside> ⁉️ Equity can be very complicated and have significant ramifications to your taxes and personal finances. Unfortunately, founders and investors sometimes put employees at a disadvantage by failing to share information about their stock options. For this reason, Ride Report aims to provide as much transparency as possible for our stock options program.
However, this information is not legal or financial advice! We might occasionally be wrong about things, and we can't speak to your particular situation. If you are making a major decision such as exercising your options, consult a financial or tax advisor. We will be happy to provide any information you or they need to evaluate your choice.
