IMO an 83b election only makes sense if you have negligible exercise costs. Otherwise, it's a lot of risk to take on an exit that may never profitably happen.

Eh, it generally can make sense if you can get QSBS, as that is so favorable.

All said, the better companies offer partial recourse loans to early exercise.
