Yeah… stripe isn’t a startup. If you are getting similar offers to big tech—which for you is probably an L7 550K TC—then the “start up” is likely a mid stage unicorn. Startups in the sub $500M valuation mark do not just give away $1.5M in equity grants unless you are coming in as a VP and running an entire function.

Bingo

Late stage pre IPO is likely to be the more lucrative option in this frothy IPO market, assuming it continues another 4 years. The offer will come down to the valuation that you are getting the grants at. I would find out what you can there. Personally, I think you are better off going to a FANG, get the reps in as an L7, then look to jump into a late stage pre-IPO at an L8+ / VP level.

Thanks for your response btw, SM1. Super insightful

Is this a real startup (Series A or B) or a “startup” on Series Z?

Late stage startup (pre-IPO).

Then the upside should be equivalent to big tech
