The Founder’s Pie Calculator Workshop: How to Ensure Founders Get their Fair Share of Equity

When starting a company, you have to decide who owns what. And that starts with calculating equity among the founders. While most approach this task logically by splitting equity equally, in the long run that can be detrimental to the company and founders at critical points during the company’s lifespan.

Why? Because some founders simply bring more to the table than others and should compensated as such. This is particularly true for university start-ups, which are more likely to have multiple founders — and where a faculty founder may have wildly different roles and responsibilities, as well as the IP contribution, when compared with a co-founding entrepreneur.

While it sounds like an unpleasant conversation, the tools provided in The Founder’s Pie Calculator Workshop: How to Ensure Founders Get their Fair Share of Equity, a webinar schedule for June 28, will make the task of equity division logical, simple, and fair.
