How do you mean "selling" equity? You mean granting and looking for vesting and terms or actually selling this person equity for cash as you would an investor? Dane Madsen 206.900.5852 Mobile Sent from my mobile device. Forgive typographical and grammatical errors.

Aly - read Slicing Pie.  Any equity to your core team should be milestone based. Tech is one of the areas where you will see a lot of stories of being "burned" by promises and no or poor delivery.
