Forming a new software startup, how do I allocate ownership fairly?
I would be the sole on-site tech person, along with being 'tech-co-founder'
There are two business-co-founders as well getting about 20-25% each.
They offered me 10%, however; I've read this is by far the bare minimum.
I will have the job of writing the demo of this product and getting everything technical off the ground. The system is an education platform that will run on the cloud primarily.
Background of Cofounders:
Business-partner 1: 20 years industry experience, CEO of company. Potential Salary. 20-25% equity. Business-partner 2: Just graduated, visionary for idea. No industry exp. Potential Salary. 20-25% equity.
Me(Tech. Co-founder): About to graduate, already have industry experience in IT of 4-5 years. Potential Salary. Offered 10%.
Is thinking I should get 15-20% reasonable in this case?
Thoughts? Business and technical people feel free to chime in!
