Can Oyster Provide Equity to my Team?

In most cases Oyster can provide equity to team members.

Your team on the Oyster Platform will be employed by Oyster and not by your company. Most company equity schemes allow you to provide share options to non-employees (typically called "non-qualified stock options (NSOs)" or "unapproved options").

These share schemes are typically not as tax advantageous for the employee as your home entity country share schemes - we recommend speaking to your equity provider to understand the details for both your company and your employees.
