About this event

The toughest tests in your startup’s life don’t happen in toughest times, but after. In order to avoid the Zuckerberg-Saverin fiasco of who was behind the billion dollar idea, divide the shares in your startup fairly from day one.

A great tool for that is Slicing Pie – it is a simple formula based on the principle that a person’s % share of the equity should always be equal to that person’s share of the at-risk contributions.

In this workshop, led by entrepreneur and author Jana Nevrlka, you will learn about different equity split options that you as a founder can consider, common pitfalls and best practices, and how to implement the Slicing Pie model.
