Vestd doesn't just help you get started, what I really like is how the team has addresses the real challenge of ongoing management of EMI options. For our team, the individual employees are able to view what options they have been awarded by visiting their portal at any time.
Even though Vestd make it as simple as possible, setting up a share scheme is still a complicated process to get your head around!
The problem we were trying to solve for when we found Vestd was that the process of giving or receiving shares in a private limited company was extremely cumbersome, expensive and confusing. The "paper based" process that exists today is archaic and is a hindrance for innovative companies operating in the startup ecosystem, when it comes to sharing some of the potential upside with employees and other partners that work with them through their journey.
My experience with Vestd has been really fantastic. They have an amazing digital experience but have also added great "human" customer service to guide you through the process.
