PUBLIC:

I am about to close on a $4M Series A in the NYC area and am trying to understand how much equity founders typically retain after the round. I have founded the company with one other person and we split our duties equally. (CTO/CEO) Since then we have brought on several other engineers. Thanks for any input.

Would You 'Pool' Some of Your Founders Stock with Other Founders to Share Risk/Reward

TheFunded.com Advice

Posted by chimala on 2008-06-18

Tags: Operations Founders Equity

PUBLIC:

You probably heard of this concept - founders of VC funded startups contribute some of their stock to a 'fund' and thereby share the risk/reward. This kinda works like an insurance in case your startup goes to the dead pool.

The question is, as a startup entrepreneur, would you be in favor of such a proposal"
