Slicing Pie is a universal, one-size-fits all model that creates a perfectly fair equity split in an early-stage, bootstrapped start-up company. 

I’m sure you get a million of these a day, but I just wanted to write you and personally thank you for creating this simple system and sharing it. I can’t tell you the heartache that I’ve gone through, loosing a business partner and best friend to the evils of a poorly thought out equity split. Never again!
