When you get your startup going with a cofounder, a dificult question that often pops up is how to split the shares between founders and also early employees. That’s exactly the problem Mike Moyer was confronted with when he started his company. The simple answer (50/50) proved to be a bad choice ... but how do you split equity then? The Slicing Pie method Mike developed and described in his book may be the answer.
When Mike was in Belgium for a speech at The CoFoundry I took the opportunity to sit down with him for an interview about splitting equity, poker, marketing and life in general.
