I'm building a stock option calculator for startup employees. It walks you through how to collect the information you need to know about the stock options you own, or have been offered, and figure out how much they would be worth in various scenarios.


I would have found this incredibly useful when I was doing research to understand stock options that I have had in the past. Sounds like a really cool project. Keep at it!

Also, to get a more accurate estimation, you will have to know the amount of investment in each round and the permissions that come with different classes of shares. For example, liquidation preferences and investors deciding whether they will convert to common shares or not, etc.

Thanks! I'm definitely planning on adding liquidation preferences -- a lot of people have been requesting it.
