A VC : Venture Capital and Technology
NOVEMBER 7, 2016
I’ve written a bunch on this topic and here are two posts that address this exact issue: Founder Dilution – How Much Is “Normal”? Employee Equity: Dilution. I saw a blog post this weekend that looked at the IPO filings of 79 tech companies and calculated the ownerships of the founders and the VCs at IPO. The result of that analysis is that the average founder ownership at IPO was 17% and the average VC ownership at IPO was 56%.
