SO, today I was laid off. I have approx. 30,000 options of my company shares at around $1.00 a share. We are still Pre-IPO, but IPO is very likely in the next 6-9 months. It is a Health Care/Med Device company (CEO and design team did the DaVinci surgical robot) and will likely do pretty well on the market. I will have 30 days to purchase these share options. It will be a huge, if not over stretch on our finances (unless by a miracle I find a job before then). My question is, should I attempt to acquire all of these or some fraction? Should I offer friends or family members this opportunity? HELP?
