I know this has been addressed. However, each set-up is different and I want to proved the particulars on this one to get some thoughts.
I need some help establishing an equitable Cap. Table. My contribution is the IP, products that I developed. For a period of one year, I worked at this, I envisioned the concept, developed the products, named the products, and have common law TM’s, wrote the business and marketing plan, and put the initial investors together. During this period, I put in 62k of my money. This went for all business expenses, and R&D and no salary as there was no revenue steam. I will serve as CEO of the new company.
Co founder A (my cousin). Current time contribution is very limited. Cash contribution is 10K cash with an additional future 20K (30k) total. He currently works full time. Is the sole proprietor of a wholesale home furnishings business. His future time commitment is PT, wants to be FT when we take off.
Dr. Co Founder B. Current contribution (time or Cash) is zero, future cash contribution will be 30K and his future time commitment will be PT. MD credentials are of value to the company. Great attitude.
I am insisting on a vesting schedule, four years with a one year milestone (cliff) and monthly vesting thereafter. 25% after the first year, plus the 2.083% vesting each month thereafter.
Both my co-founders work a full time job, which means their time spent on my company endeavors will be limited. How should I consider this or should I consider it with respects to stock issuance, amounts, and incents them?
