Hi all, I`m starting a business with three indivuduals (VERY early stages). We have a viable business concept of which I was an interigal part in designing. We`ve met a few times to talk through issues, ideas, etc., and it`s progressing. I was approached by one of the other two partners yesterday and he said " you know, we`re going to have to decide how much of the company each one of us will own" I got nervous because he is close friends with the other member, so I felt a bit ...squeezed shall we say. He claims he has a lot of business contacts, which it may be true he has more than me. As the original three founding members, I was assuming the three of us would have the largest and equal shares in the company. The rest of the team we build would own the rest. Am I out of line, or unrealistic, to propose we all own equal shares?
