This framework is intended to give you a starting point and a guide when deciding whether or not, or how much equity to give to early stage staff.
This is an art, rather than a science. Ultimately, one of the most important parts is that you are comfortable with the long-term partnership aspect of having someone sharing in the ownership of your business.
