Services for Cofounders

Would you ever consider sky-diving without any prior training or instructions? Probably not.

The same should be true for business partnerships! They are great and can be very powerful and successful, if you know how to do them right. I will help you with range of tasks, from selecting the right cofounders, forming the right team, creating ongoing incentives and splitting the equity to documenting everything in your Cofounding agreement.

1.FUTURE COFOUNDERS

As a future cofounder there are many questions you will be considering. I will provide you with consulting services to answer all of them and take action.

  • If you are forming a new cofounding team, you will be probably asking these questions

    • 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?

  • If you are considering joining an existing team, you may be asking these questions

    • Shall I join? How will I fit in?

    • What is the fair equity share I need to negotiate?

    • What else do I need to be aware of?

2. EXISTING COFOUNDING TEAMS

Are you an existing team and would you like to make sure that you are in the best possible shape?

Ensure you have a solid base!

  • Review the team structure, including roles and responsibilities

  • Improve the way you work together

  • Manage a leaving or joining cofounder

  • Review your existing Cofounder Agreement. You don’t have any yet? Get your Cofounder Agreement template now! Better late than never.

Is there a trouble in paradise?

Whether it is a disagreement within the team, dispute with leaving cofounder or team, or simple underperformance of the team (or some members), I can guide you. The cofounder mediation is proven as the least damaging and costly way to resolve disputes. 

Help with equity splits

It is one of the most important decisions, and one which impacts your business going forward. Unfortunately, there is a very little guidance out there. I am here to help with:

  • Information on different equity split options and possibilities (fixed, dynamic, vesting, cliffs)

  • Recommendation on what is most suitable for your team

  • Dynamic equity split templates for the DYI (Do It Yourself)
