Most of the data is from 2022 โ€” this year. Exact submission date is listed under "Date" column.

It's your % ownership of the startup. Calculated one of two ways:
โ€ข Your total # of shares รท Fully diluted outstanding shares x 100 โ€” confirm that it's fully diluted; otherwise, your stake will look higher than it truly is
โ€ข Current value of your shares รท current company valuation x 100 โ€” value is based on preferred price (what investors paid); updates with each fundraise

Always make sure you have the numerator and the denominator.

Estimates how much you can make based on growth in valuation. It's more reliable than guessing future price per share.

For example, if you have a 1% equity stake in a startup valued at $100M, which eventually IPOs at $1B, your stake will be worth 1% * $1B * dilution rate โ€” dilution rate varies, but a rule of thumb is to assume 25% per funding round. This means the earlier you join, the more diluted you'll become. But you'll also have a lower strike price and (usually) a much bigger % to start with.
