Has anyone received equity as contingency comp? I have a potential client with a founders dispute. He doesn’t have cash, and the other founder ripped him off and is now running the company.

Hi, OPT question for folks. My student visa expires in December (EAD expiresin first week of January). I will be enrolling in day 1 CPT college but was told I don’t need to go back to hone country to get my visa stamp on passport. My concern is will this affect me down the road if I apply for green card let’s say in 4 years. Because my passport does not have a valid visa after this year but I will still be staying in the USA under my masters I-20. Thanks!
