How do European attitudes towards equity in startups compare to those in the US, and are there any indications of a convergence trend?

Yes, 100%. It’s progressing super fast. We see it in our conversations with employees. We have a grid where a lot of people try to top their equity stakes. I think it means that we're hiring good people, but in general, it seems to be improving. It's just very hard to believe that equity's worth anything until you've seen other people get rich from it. 

In Europe, those companies are just attaining maturity. So, yes, it is starting to become a much more common and important part of conversations and hiring.
