We have a very complex team and our actual roles and skills are known to each other only after we started working and deciding the equities which would be vested in few years. We started working from few months ago. We are developing the product for enterprise customers so sales and contacts going to be important. Below is our composition. Current agreement is that we are going to get the equities vested in few years time. We are looking at founders share here
1) A had idea and a sales executive, brought the team together left the existing company 1 month ago. has near 50%.
2) sales executive. will be leaving his existing company in few days.
3) Was an executive in a product development company, now in a startup. Supposed to be good at product development and management but failed so far so we assigned him to take care of legal work. Not a technical person and can't understand any product development. Cannot leave his current job not till few months more due to visa problems. Currently living on a job visa provided by his existing company in silicon valley.
4)Developer working alone for 4 months. Also started building the technical team. Only technical person in the founding team. Stopped working for his previous company 3 months ago.
Equity distribution is done few months ago keeping in mind that the developer would just do the work of software development. And least amount of share is given to developer and is asking for increase in equity for doing product development also. Should the equity be distributed again? What would be the consequences if the equity of 3) is decreased now?
