My question is regarded to a startup's equity sharing. Basically, the Startup will be very demanding in terms of operation and we are 4 partners, but 1 partner will be out of the country studying for one year.
All the partners will put the same money, and we agreed in sharing the equity equally. However, we believe that the partner that is going to study abroad should be penalized somehow. Whether it is options, money or equity I would like to ask if there are any good options for our dilemma?
