The article discusses how start-up companies can use equity grants to attract seasoned executives. Executives admit that they are finding it difficult to hire top-tier talent given the salary levels, benefits, job security, and flexibility offered by other companies. Despite these options, some seasoned executives are attracted to start-ups because they are given the opportunity to grow a company. Add to this the promise of equity stake that could grow higher as the company expands.
