Full visibility into cash and equity burn

With Sequoia One’s end-to-end compensation management solution, tech startups clearly see, in real time, how their compensation philosophy, headcount plan, and merit plan impact their VC funding, runway, and ability to attract and retain top talent.

Real-time insights and reports that inform boards and venture capital firms

Feel confident in the data your portcos present during board meetings, knowing it wasn’t manually managed in outdated spreadsheets. With the Sequoia People Platform, startup leaders can generate instant reports that bring together data from all their people systems — giving a full and accurate story of how they’re managing their total people spend.

Strategic outsourcing to help startup leaders preserve strong valuation

Whether your portco is in pre-seed or a late stage VC funding, you never want your founders, CEO, CFO, or HR leader to get derailed from their focus on the next inflection point due to day-to-day HR, payroll, and compliance operational tasks. Sequoia One relieves startup leaders of numerous administrative burdens so they can refocus on factors that drive higher company valuation.
