I wanted to personally thank you for writing “Slicing Pie” (just read it). I’m a young entrepreneur with several start-ups under my belt, and I’ve always struggled with the pre-revenue equity allocation. I’m struggling with it right now actually! Your book makes A LOT of sense to me, and I’m excited to start using the Grunt Fund in one of my current start-ups. So thank you again for being an inspirational author!

Everyone Loves the Book!

We had a nightmare that involved a shareholder who held a sizable portion of the company, and there was no buyout clause on his shares. We ended up paying way more than we should have to get his shares back.

We’ve since bought copies of Slicing Pie for all of the people who work at Lunar Giant. I’m happy to say that not only does everyone love the book, but our productivity has gone way up because there are no longer questions of “who gets what” lingering in our minds.


Legal and Tax Friendly

Slicing Pie works everywhere. We have a network of Slicing Pie friendly lawyers who can help you and your team implement Slicing Pie agreements that maximize security and minimize taxes.

Sigh...

I wish I had read this before I had fallen prey to a 1-year cliff deal. Founders changed their minds half year in and all I got was the iMac they paid half for. *sigh*
