Forming a new software startup, how do I allocate ownership fairly?
it's been pretty difficult for my team and I (as it is for everyone) to come up with equity numbers. I'm wondering if anyone could look this over and see what is reasonable. We are all close friends, and haven't made a big deal of it, but we all want it to be fair.
We are a team of 3 and I am the only one with tech experience. The other 2 are investing $4000 (I wasn't in position to up front), and will act as the business leads (where we will all contribute).
We are currently paying a developer (not part of the team) that I know to develop the major components of our application for about half our total cash.
I am responsible for all wireframes, web design, frontend, ux and a fair amount of backend + server work (working together with developer) and all maintenance going forward.
Currently we've been talking about numbers like 35/35/30 where I take 30. Is this reasonable given the limited information I have provided? Am I selling myself short/should consider myself lucky?
