Founder Equity Solution ("FES") model is based on an algorithm that calculates shares of equity for each founder based on information (selected answers) provided by the users. The quality and precision of the calculated equity split depends on the quality and precision of the answers given. The algorithm used in the model is based on research findings and statistical data. It works well for most startups. However we understand that each startup is unique and each founder may have personal strengths or roles in the startup not included into our model. Hence, we suggest that you use the equity split calculated in our model as a starting point for further equity negotiations with your co-founders, rather than a "set-in-stone" decision. For the avoidance of doubt, equity calculations provided by the model are not legally binding.
