What is this?

This is a tool we built at Front to improve the level of transparency we provide to candidates whom we end up making an offer to. You can read more about it here. If Front sounds like a company you'd like to work at, check out our open roles!

How it works

You can manipulate the values in the calculator below. This will help you estimate the value of your equity package based on various scenarios.

Account for some dilution in future rounds of funding.

Please note that this document is not a guarantee of anything, it is only a tool to help you estimate the potential value of your equity.

This tool doesn't account for taxes, and we cannot give you financial advice on that matter; for that, you should consult with a specialist.
