Co-Founder Equity Calculator
It sounds like a lot of equity to give away, what if a co-founder leaves? The equity numbers assume a typical 4-year vesting for all founders including the CEO, with no cliff. It also assumes that no significant salary is provided to any of the co-founders (if that is wrong, you are entering into an employee relationship, not a co-founder relationship). If a founder leaves, vesting applies and they forfeit the shares that have not vested yet. What does "You have a weak CEO" mean? Having a "weak CEO" means that your CEO may not be getting their hands dirty enough to make the startup take-off.
