I Read Slicing Pie and I Thought it was Fantastic!
I just wanted to let you know I read Slicing Pie and I thought it was fantastic! Thank you so much for writing such a comprehensive and easy to digest book on the subject – the best part about it is that it’s focused on being fair and I think that’s the most important thing.
Keeping Track is as Easy as Pie
The Pie Slicer software makes managing your equity split super easy. The Slicing Pie startup equity splits changes when participants make contributions of time, money, ideas, relationships, facilities, supplies, equipment or anything else the company needs.
I Feel Much More Knowledgeable and Confident
One of the most impressive aspects of Mike’s book is his accounting for the many different scenarios that can occur when partnering-up to start a company. The Excel docs available on his website allowed me to go right into a practical application of what was read. I am meeting with a potential partner/investor this week. As a result of reading the book I feel much more knowledgeable and confident, not just about the meeting, the potential for the business as well.
