Baseline Criteria: Let’s assume that for Year One you will only use third-party ad-serving networks, instead of direct selling.

How to Divide Equity to Startup Founders, Advisors, and Employees Since returning from MIT back in June I’ve been focusing on the growth of the company. It has been pretty much on mind non-stop for months now.

Seedhack Founders Collaboration Agreement Starting a new company requires inspiring early co-founders to join you in your efforts and then quickly establishing an environment of trust where everyone works hard and fairly shares the upside of any success. To that end, we’re launching the Seedhack Founder’s Collaboration Agreement (download here in .DOC or in .PDF ) which is designed for a newly formed team to agree on what each founder’s shareholding should be as well as how to make sure that each founder puts a continued effort throughout the lifetime of the company in order to keep their equity stake. The hope is that this document will not only help events like Seedhack, where collaboration amongst team members is key, but also any ‘back of a napkin at a cafeteria’ brainstormed startups where people put a lot of sweat equity in even before they think about forming a ‘formal’ company. A big thank you to Tina Baker from Brown Rudnick for drafting the agreement.

Anyone may use the Business Model Canvas and the Value Proposition Canvas for their own work or to support others in understanding, analysing or changing their business models.
