In the most likely scenario, you've left the company (voluntarily or involuntarily) before the IPO. Once you leave, you're in the dreaded 90-day window. Suddenly, your "options" disappear within 90 days. You have to make a quick decision: to get risk-free financing to buy them, or try to quickly sell your options.

Even before your 90-day window, Vested can give you personalized insights for your stock options and real-time monitoring for potential buyers. All this for free. Arm yourself with the best data possible.
