When you get your startup going with a cofounder, a difficult
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.
