Publisher's Summary

You and a partner go into business together and split the equity 50/50. You do all the work and your partner slacks off. He owns half your business - now what?
Slicing Pie outlines a process for calculating exactly the right number of shares each founder or employee in an early stage company deserves.
You will learn:

How to value the time and resources an individual brings to the company relative to the contributions of others
The right way to value intangible things like ideas and relationships
What to do when a founder leaves your company
How to handle equity when you have to fire someone
Important issues to discuss with your lawyer
Much more
Research shows that dynamic equity split models, like the one outlined in Slicing Pie, is the best way to avoid conflicts as the company grows. The new and improved Version 2.3 contains updated information about legal issues, idea valuation, retrofitting, and much more!

Literally, how to answer the million dollar question…

I found this book to be an excellent resource to help change a qualitative equity division process into a very fair and quantitative equity process. Dynamic equity allocation is definitely the only way to go!

Good, but would like to see a second edition...

... because I read on the author's own blog how times have changed and he would have taken things out of the book or change them if you were to do it again. Let's get that knowledge out there. And also let's get a few variations that can work with founders who are also investors and/or incubators or Startup studios.
