What's the typical equity split between founders, C-level, and grunts, over time?


Last updated on November 29th, 2017

Let's say 2 co-founders, CEO and CTO, raise a Seed/Series A, to begin their business.

Then they hire a COO and two dozen employees.

And within two years, they hire a CMO and CSO, and another three dozen employees.

What's the equity split between the co-founders, the initial C-level hire and employees, and the later C-level hire and employees, assuming they don't raise another round?
