The number-one startup killer is one that you might not expect: co-founder conflict.
Yup, it's true — 62% of startups fail because co-founders clash. What's one of the major reasons they butt heads? Splitting equity. Who gets what? What if they work more, or possess more skills, or contribute more money?
These considerations can complicate the equation and lead to conflict, but they don't have to.
The purpose of this certification course is to help you make transparent and comprehensive calculations (and not approximations). Through detailed demonstrations and case studies examined by the instructor, you will learn all of the mistakes to avoid, how to value everything from ideas to cash, and how to use a waterfall framework and a startup equity calculator, putting you on the road to determining a fair equity split.
