Tip of the Week

25 Mar

Hello everyone!

Here’s your weekly tip, this one is from the BSI’s one and only Seth Bella: 

When splitting equity between founding members, try to avoid settling for an even split. Often times this will lead to issues in the future. You must split for the future. A tactic such as vesting can make sure each member contributes an equal amount over time to earn their fair share.

We hope that this will help you in some shape or form one day. We just wanted to remind you to follow your dreams! Have a great day everybody!
