Fred Wilson venture capitalist and Co-Founder Union Square Ventures

Even if one expects multiple investment rounds, Wilson says it’s better to determine option pool needs “round to round [vs. earmarking all expected future option pool needs upfront] because you can never know where this thing is headed and when you'll sell.”  Fred Wilson, Valuation and Option Pool, Nov. 6, 2009 comments section, http://www.avc.com/a_vc/2009/11/valuation-and-option-pool.html#comment-22043449
