Perhaps there is a recommended resource?
Growth-hacking isn’t about quick wins and shortcuts, although they exist. In this course, we’ll cover the six-step growth hacking framework, how to measure user retention for your business, how to increase engagement and retention, and a bunch of case studies.

It has proven that NVCA templates are best for boiler plates. I usually recommend my clients to look through there, fill in the blanks to the best of their knowledge and then I revise only the end result, saving them a lot of money. Hope this helps

YC, Techstars, and many other programs have open sourced their startup legal document templates. I believe the latests stock plans from YC can be found at https://www.clerky.com/yc-stock-plan-forms

Any decent start-up attorney will provide you a pack of core legal documents, including a stock option plan.
