Evergreen options offers employees the opportunity to accumulate ownership in the company where they work.
Why Does an Evergreen Option Matter?
Evergreen options are used by companies to motivate employees and encourage loyalty by offering them the opportunity to share in the growth and success of a company through partial ownership.
