I read some articles about Startup Equity Distribution: Here is one of them: http://blog.weatherby.net/2008/10/startup-equity-distribution.html
They give good insight, but still I couldn't use the information I got from them to get a good answer for my situation.
Here is my situation, we are 4 CO-founders:
- Investor of $150,000. Involved in the idea, but has a different full time job.
- Investor of $150,000. Involved in the idea, Involved in business management and marketing, invests in the start up 30% of his time.
- Came up with the idea, brought together all the other CO-founders, worked on the idea few months before founding the company. Has quit his previous job and Invests 100% of his time in the company.
- CTO. Joined the company since day 1. Responsible of implementing the idea. Has quit his previous job and invests 100% in the company.
What should be a reasonable equity distribution between the 4 of us? I know the information is not complete and it's hard to give an accurate answer to such a complicated question, but I would be very glad to hear the opinion of experienced audience, even rough estimations.
