Check what you need.

FUTURE COFOUNDERS

As a future cofounder some of the questions you will be considering are:

Joining an existing team: shall I join? How will I fit? What is the fair equity share I need to negotiate? What else do I need to be aware of?

  • Individual session: information is power. Talk to us to find out what you need to do.

Forming a new cofounding team: do I have the right cofounders? How will we work together as a team? How shall we split the roles and responsibilities? What do we need to know about each other? Do we have an alignment on purpose of the company? How shall we split the equity? What are the options? Vesting? Cliffs? Milestones?

  • Cofounding starter pack: to get you started on the right foot. Includes individual team assignment, cofounders team workshop and development of your cofounding agreement.
  • When is the right time to do it? As soon as you start working together! The legal obligations and liabilities start there! Not once you start generating revenue or incorporate a company.
