NextGen Investor Plan (NIP)

The NextGen Investor Plan (NIP) allows you to create an employee-owned company without the challenges or cost of an ESOP. The NIP is an equity sharing plan that creates a roadmap (scheduled or flexible) for your employees to become small, fractional owners in your company.

Phantom Equity

Phantom Equity Plans allow you to create a strategy designed to provide a stake in the total value or appreciated value of your business. These plans get your employees to think and act more like owners. And, best of all, you have the flexibility to change the plan and you don't have to share voting rights and/or profits. 

Equity Grant Plan

Equity Grant Plans allow you to share real equity/ownership with selective employees. Each plan is tailored to your employee(s) by assigning certain rights and responsibilities that are subject to specific vesting criteria.  Equity Grant Plans can offer more flexibility, making it a great alternative for rewarding your highly valued employees.

Profit Sharing Plan

Profit Sharing Plans, or a "Long Term Incentive Plan," is an effective tool to incentivize employee performance and employee retention by sharing annual profits from the company. These well-crafted, individualized plans reward your employees for their contribution to your company’s success while protecting your company from employee risks.
