Description

Start Up Learning Series: Stock Options, RRSP's, and Benefits

This event is a follow up to our March session on “How to Build a Strong Employee Culture”. Once you’ve established a culture at your technology business, what employee incentive structures should you use to retain your existing talent and attract that next generation of established talent?

The competition is fierce – in this session, we will dive into the benefits and drawbacks of various structures and share some success/horror stories we’ve seen in the past. Erica Rizzo from Cmd, Andrew Dilts from Cassels-Brock and Brandon Chapman from Freedom 55 Financial will discuss what to use depending on what is happening in your business.

  • Employee Stock Purchase Programs (ESPP)
  • Group Benefits & Pension Programs
  • Beer & ping-pong tables

This event will be helpful for:

  • Founders and senior leadership of growing startups with 5+ employees
  • Startups who have achieved product-market fit and are growing their team

Our speakers include:


Brandon Chapman

Brandon Chapman manages his own Group Benefits & Pension practise here in Vancouver and has been supporting technology companies for the past 5 years. He is passionate about the success of Vancouver’s technology industry and loves to see entrepreneurs succeed. He formerly ran a drone start-up so knows the grind of building from the ground up.



Erica Rizzo

She has been part of the Vancouver tech scene for the last 6 years as part of the Recruitment teams for Hootsuite and MetaLab.
