At Putnam Gordon, P.C., we like to work with entrepreneurs at all stages of the startup lifecycle. Improperly handling equity early on is one easy way to kill a startup.
The image below is a link to slides from a presentation on December 14, 2015 about founders’ equity. San Francisco-based startup attorney Jason Putnam Gordon of Putnam Gordon, P.C. discussed issues on properly distributing equity to compensate/reward founders, investors, and other contributors to help build a successful startup. The discussion included the basics of valuation and ownership, as well as best practices for founders, employees and consultants, early and then later investors.
At Putnam Gordon, P.C. we love working with startups, and are available to speak with you as you grow your idea into a successful business and beyond. (Please note: any communication with Putnam Gordon, P.C. is not confidential unless and until there is a signed written engagement agreement.)
