Funding Your Company Without Funds with Mike Moyer

By: SmallBizClub


Startup equity splits are one of the leading causes of problems between founders. Slicing Pie author Mike Moyer and I discuss funding your company without funds by using a dynamic equity share, his novel approach to allocating equity. Star-ups often change direction as they grow or simply outgrow the talents of one or more of the founders. In addition, the motivation and commitment of founding team members may change for any number or reasons. Consequently, there is no way of knowing in advance what someone’s future contribution will really be as time unfolds. A dynamic equity structure protects and rewards everyone as the business grows and circumstances shift.
