Assume, you are a novice, at the startup game, and you get interest in your startup from a co-founder who has previously had an exit at valuation of around €18 million (US $19 Million).


For simplicity assume all else is equal,how would you split equity? What premium would you place on this? Would this be different for IPO, as opposed to merger/acquisition?


Do you have a calculation? Percentage rage?


What if they had multiple successful exits?
