Helsinki: thanks to the efforts of Jon Hautamäki (Mr.), Partner at Nordic Law Ltd, who customised for Finnish founders the Cofounder Agreement template using the dynamic equity split. The dynamic equity split is based on Mike Moyer’s slicing pie method. This is great news for Finnish early stage founders, as it gives them the opportunity to use the ‘fairest equity split tool’ and avoid many potential issues that are caused by fixed equity split in too early stages.

The solution is based on the standardised templates developed by Jana Nevrlka, the founder of Cofounding, who coordinates the development of the slicing pie solution for European founders together with great help and support of Mike Moyer and other local slicing pie experts.

Mike Moyer, the US-based inventor of the Slicing Pie model, was pleased to hear the development “Slicing Pie is used by thousands of companies all over the world and most countries encourage fairness, but it is always nice to give founders that extra certainty that the model is aligned with the local rules and have local Slicing Pie expertise available.”
