All founders face challenges in determining how to apportion equity in their startups, and they often carve off excessive segments of the company at an early stage, creating future problems, particularly if the holders are no longer engaged in the company. In this workshop, we will review basic terminology and definitions related to equity, discuss market levels of compensation for key personnel and advisors, and review excel models that work well for managing the companies cap table, both at the founding stage and as the company grows.
