Structuring and Allocating Equity among Founders for Startup Success.

This article of mine, published earlier in Boston Business Journal, offers entrepreneurs techniques to build management while still conserving cash, including 1) Entity choice: LLC vs. corporation, the role of that choice in company growth and recruitment, 2) Methods of allocating equity among the startup team, 3) Key business and tax issues involved in equity allocation and its structuring, and 4) Shareholder and contractual issues to be resolved, separately, while all the team remains “on the same page”.
