Stock Option Plan

Definition:

A stock option plan is just the, uh, plan that the company uses to issue stock options.

The plan outlines the number of options that will be issued, what the options are like, the time frame for the options, any rules that relate to the options, the strike price, and the level of insanity of the start-up founder. (We wish.)
