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.
We Haven't Been Able to Break It!
We use a Grunt Fund for our company Magic Wizard LLC. The Grunt Fund allowed us to save a ton of legal costs and on board people quickly. We currently have 12 engineers and marketers working on the project in their spare time. We have everything from VPs in marketing for a $55MM company and senior engineers to first year undergrads who just want to help. The Grunt Fund has made all that possible by easily on boarding and faith sharing equity. Magic Wizard is also our own experiment in how robust the Grunt Fund is, our motto is "Break the Grunt Fund!" So far, by appropriately following the rules, we haven’t been able to break it!
