Frequently Asked Questions

We have answers

Do I need to transfer shares to use Webform?

No. It's personal income pooling from liquidity events, including secondaries and exits - no shares, tokens or cash changes hands today and you do not require board or shareholder approvals to use Webform.

Does pooling imply I'm not bullish my startup?

No. Webform allows you to turn your illiquid equity into a productive asset. It is not an “easy exit” but a new tool that uses a small percentage of your total holdings to turbocharges your financial and community outcomes.

How does it work?

Each pooler signs an income pooling agreement committing a percentage of their future personal income from secondaries and exits to a pool. This commitment's value is based on the current company valuation and determines your share of the pool's future liquidity.

For instance, in a pool of 10 founders each holding $10M of equity and pooling in 1%, the pool's value stands at $1M, with each founder owning a 10% pro-rata stake in the pool's future liquidity.

How is it taxed?

In general contributions into the pool are calculated on the gross amount of liquidity and distributions to you from the pool will be taxed either as income or capital gains, depending on your jurisdiction. We expect some US founders will pay no tax on their first $10M of liquidity (Qualified Small Business Stock exemption).

Do I get a say on who I’m pooled with?

Yes. While we have a rigorous vetting process to accept pools to the network, you form your own pool and thus have final say on who's in your specific group.

Who’s talking about this?

A notable mention is the co-founder of AI accelerator HF0 and Teespring, a unicorn startup, who wrote this great thread on pooling:

What should I contribute?

Individuals are on average committing 3% of their future liquidity to a pool.

How do you benefit funds and accelerators?

When you create a pool for your founders, you incentivize platform, collaboration and risk taking, shown to increase IRR by as much as 11%. Depending how many founders you pool, you may also earn some of the pool's liquidity directly.
