A common problem for some startups is the equalization of equity structure. A few friends come out to start a business, let's be the same. But after a period of development, everyone's contribution may vary, and at this point, the average equity will bring some problems. Below, the editor of Jinan Partnership Design Company will list a few statements from people who have come over for your reference.
1. Do not average the equity structure. In the United States, several founders share their equity equally, and the company can also operate. But in China, on the contrary, the companies that can do it are still more dominant. The relatively successful model is as follows: having a major shareholder is the center of decision-making; In addition, with several minority shareholders holding 10 or 8 shares, they have the right to speak up and can sing the opposite to the boss. Based on such a pattern, there are both different opinions and opinions to be heard.
2. Equity distribution. The interest structure should be reasonable. Companies during the entrepreneurial period are generally limited liability companies. The form of investment can be in cash, in kind, intellectual property, etc. Cash is used for external investment, which needs to be evaluated or negotiated by everyone, and the equity ratio is set based on value. That is to say, capital is a part, work ability is a part, and previous background and future contributions are also a part. Divide the equity ratio from these three levels.
The basic principle of equity distribution is that the interest structure should be reasonable and the contribution should be positively correlated. The basic principle is that equity is only granted to non fungible individuals, and fungible individuals generally do not require equity.
3. Establish a conflict prevention mechanism. When we see companies with dispersed equity, it is generally recommended to first focus on equity concentration and establish a conflict prevention mechanism. The current practice is that everyone will sign an agreement to jointly sponsor the company, clearly stating their respective rights and obligations, including the resolution of disputes, in black and white. To prevent conflicts arising from a shareholder having to leave for certain reasons.
4. To issue options in a timely manner. Different companies are different, and internet companies may have option pools when they are first established, but some companies may be delayed. The timing is determined based on business development. Generally, it is appropriate to offer an option incentive with no more than 10% of the shares.
That's all we need to pay attention to when setting up an equity structure for a startup. We hope it can help you avoid minefields and better manage your equity structure.
