Following result is obtained by our expert's opinion:
Co-founders can split equity in any numbers from 10 % - 90% to 40% - 60 % depending upon the domain expertise, capital contribution and owner of the idea.
But here are some points which you should consider :
1. Your equity splits with your co-founders are what’s going to motivate your co-founders to stick with your company through the years and years it takes in order for you to build a large company that has a massive impact.
2. As a CEO, your equity split should not be based on your negotiations, your first thought has to be how do I cope with an equity split that’s going to maximize the motivation of my teammates.
3. When you are giving the equity to anyone in the company including the founders, he has to work in the company for 4 years to actually get that stake and if you or any founders leave or get fired in one year, he will get nothing.
They should feel like they are the true owners of the company and not just employee.
