Due to popular demand, I’ve decided to finally tackle the billion dollar beast. And while it’s not easy to have a conversation about startup equity without putting the faint of heart to sleep, it’s territory that simply can’t be overlooked. Because for any growth-oriented entrepreneur entertaining the idea of handing out equity in their company, the math absolutely matters… And one small misstep can be the difference between accelerated growth or the speed pass to startup hell. So if you’ve ever wondered what a healthy equity breakdown looks like for all key stakeholders (founders, advisors, investors and team members)... … then give this new video a quick spin. As you can see, used appropriately, equity can be an amazing way to incentivize team members and attract key advisors and investors. Like I did with Uber’s Travis Kalanick But if you don’t enter the conversation with clear knowledge of the right benchmarks to shoot for… … then you’re setting yourself up to either give too much away or lose talent and investors to other startups playing a much sharper numbers game. So get your numbers right. Make the right offers. And then step up to the plate and use equity for the growth accelerant it is. To splitting the pie… (and watching it grow), – Dan Don't forget to share this entrepreneurial advice with your friends, so they can learn too: https://youtu.be/hWA1b8owinc ===================== ABOUT DAN MARTELL ===================== “You can only keep what you give away.” That’s the mantra that’s shaped Dan Martell from a struggling 20-something business owner in the Canadian Maritimes (which is waaay out east) to a successful startup founder who’s raised more than $3 million in venture funding and exited not one... not two... but three tech businesses: Clarity.fm, Spheric and Flowtown. You can only keep what you give away. That philosophy has led Dan to invest in 33+ early stage startups such as Udemy, Intercom, Unbounce and Foodspotting. It’s also helped him shape the future of Hootsuite as an advisor to the social media tour de force. An activator, a tech geek, an adrenaline junkie and, yes, a romantic (ask his wife Renee), Dan has recently turned his attention to teaching startups a fundamental, little-discussed lesson that directly impacts their growth: how to scale. You’ll find not only incredible insights in every moment of every talk Dan gives - but also highly actionable takeaways that will propel your business forward. Because Dan gives freely of all that he knows. After all, you can only keep what you give away.

What is a "Waterfall Returns" Schedule? CONCEPT: In a leveraged buyout or any deal where an investment firm acquires another company, they'll often own close to 100% of it... By http://breakingintowallstreet.com/ "Financial Modeling Training And Career Resources For Aspiring Investment Bankers" Table of Contents: 1:04: Example of Management Promotes / Waterfall Returns 3:29: Rationale for Management Promotes and Giving Away Ownership 4:25: Step-by-Step Modeling Process for Waterfall Returns 6:35: Excel Setup 7:12: Level 1 IRR Calculations 10:05: Level 2 IRR Calculations 12:38: Level 3 IRR Calculations 13:55: Level 4 IRR Calculations 14:23: How the Waterfall Distribution Affects IRRs to Everyone 17:35: Recap and Summary What is a "Waterfall Returns" Schedule? CONCEPT: In a leveraged buyout or any deal where an investment firm acquires another company, they'll often own close to 100% of it... But sometimes management will retain a small portion, or another investor group might retain a certain portion. Sometimes it ends there - but sometimes, that smaller group gets ADDITIONAL ownership and a higher stake upon exit if the investment performs well. This is called a "management promote" (if it's the management team that receives this as an incentive). EXAMPLE: A new leveraged buyout takes place, and the PE firm structures the deal to heavily incentivize the management team: For an IRR up to 10%, PE firm gets 95% and management team gets 5% of the proceeds. Then, for the portion of the IRR between 10% and 15%, the PE firm gets 90% and the management team gets 10%. For the portion of IRR between 15% and 20%, the PE firm gets 85% and the management team gets 15%. Then for the IRR above 20%, the PE firm gets 80% and the management team gets 20%. A PE firm might do this to create a "win win" scenario - yes, it loses some of its IRR by giving up a % to the management team... but if all goes well, the team should outperform and help the PE firm achieve a higher overall IRR. How Do You Model This Scenario? 1) Make assumptions for the initial investment and proceeds upon exit, plus the ownership percentages. 2) Make assumptions for how the proceeds split changes at different IRR levels. 3) For each "tier" of IRR, take the initial investment and calculate the amount of net proceeds upon exit that would correspond to that IRR. Example: $1,000 initial investment, and 10% IRR tier - multiply by (1 + 10%), then multiply that number by (1 + 10%), and so on until the exit year. 4) Determine the split of proceeds within that tier. If the actual proceeds are $1,500, for example, and $1,611 would correspond to a 10% IRR, you're done - just split the $1,500 between the PE firm and management team in a 95% / 5% split. But if it goes beyond that $1,611, you just split up the $1,611 according to those numbers and then save the rest for the next tier. 5) Determine the proceeds to distribute in the next tiers. For $3,000, for example, you'd distribute $1,611 and save ($3,000 - $1,611) for the next tiers. If you're at the 10% level and you get something below $1,611, you'd set the "proceeds for the next tiers" number to $0 (use a MAX function for this). 6) Keep doing this for each tier of IRRs until the end. The formulas get trickier as you move up because you need to use MIN and MAX to ensure that you don't get negative or nonsensical values. In Level 2, for example, the "Amount to Distribute and Split" is: =MIN(Net Proceeds That Correspond to 15% IRR in Year 5 minus Net Proceeds That Correspond to 10% IRR in Year 5, MAX(Total Net Proceeds minus Net Proceeds That Correspond to 10% IRR in Year 5, 0)) So you're taking the lesser of the proceeds between 10% and 15% IRRs, or the total remaining amount that can be distributed AFTER the Level 1 distributions. And that same type of logic continues as you move down, until the last tier.

VIDEO TRANSCRIPT: As a property investor, this is not your primary residence. The primary residence exclusion or exemption is not a factor to consider here. What one needs to consider is your exposure - because you're going to be acquiring property, you're going to be gearing it through borrowing funds from the bank, you also have tenant risk, you have potential risk when you sell the property. So one needs to consider the risk aspect very, very carefully. The other option is a close cooperation or Pty Ltd. Very often, a better tax position than just buying into your own name, and alternatively you have the Trust. We're going to do a little comparison between the different options available to you, and I'm going to group close corporations and companies together, because effectively it's the same thing. As we said earlier, buy into your own name, transfer duty is the same across all different entities. That's not a consideration at all, so you can take that off the table. Do you buy into your own name? CC or Pty, or a trust from a risk perspective, definitely not in your name. You could have your rental property portfolio costing you your home. Your rental portfolio could cost you your business or your marriage, or vice versa. Your marriage could cost you your portfolio or your business could collapse and you lose all your investment properties. And then of course you have your ultimate demise which eventually is going to result in a portfolio not continuing to the next generation, which I think is often a very important aspect of why one would establish or set-up a property portfolio. Having the property portfolio in your own name, with no asset protection, you're going to pay too much tax if you have a sizeable portfolio, because you're going to be earning a lot of rental income which will push you into the top tax bracket at 41% - not ideal. On your demise, you're going to be paying capital gains tax at the rate of 13.6%. You will have executor’s fees at 3.5% plus VAT, if the executor is a vendor. And then you also have estate duty on your portfolio at 20%. Another consideration is massive costs on death. In the event that your estate is able to carry all those death costs, the properties have to then be transferred into your heir's names - whether it be a spouse or children or dependents - and there's then conveyancing fees. There are mortgages that may have to be settled and cancelled and transferred. If you look at all those sort of obstacles and hurdles that you create by acquiring a portfolio in your own name, I think it's just not ideal, common sensically. Then you have the close corporation or Pty Ltd. Problem with most investors that we come across that use this structure, they are oblivious to the fact that it is not the ideal structure from a sale perspective. If you ever sell the property, the capital gains tax position is very, very high. That's 18.6% effectively, plus the dividends tax which brings it to around 31%. Also on the event of you generating rental income and you're in a cash flow position or cash positive position, you're going to always pay tax at least at 28% in a company or close corporation. In contrast if you put the property into a trust, a trust is the only entity in our law where you're able to distribute the income from the trust through to beneficiaries. You may have beneficiaries that have got very low tax rates or zero tax rates, and you're therefore in a position where you can create some tax efficiency by using a trust. So contrast CC company versus trust, tax-wise a trust is the more efficient tool or entity to utilise. We find people using CCs in companies not structuring the ownership. In the event that you are in a default position in a CC or a Pty, make sure that you address the ownership of that entity because you're exposing the portfolio to your vagaries, because you own the shares, or you own the members interest. On top of that - outside of the risk - on the your passing the shares and the members interest, will also form part of your estate, which will trigger the capital gains tax at 13.67, executors fees at 3.5% plus VAT, and the state duty at 20%. In contrast, a trust doesn't die. It can continue in perpetuity, and you will not pay any of those death costs or duties, or taxes, or executors’ fees. In summation, residential property portfolios, the ideal structure is a trust. Worst case, it's a company CC owned by a trust and hopefully never in your own name.

This free video was created for you by http://epsos.de and can be used for free under the creative commons license with the attribution of epSos.de as the original author of this Co-operative Economy video. Scarcity and poverty can be resolved by alternative ownership models and social understanding of why it is not necessary to own stuff, if we can rent very fast or co-own objects in public libraries with 100 times cheaper membership fees than the price of ownership of unused objects. Another example could be the health screening service. Such a service could be done by an automated health booth where people enter and get screened for health metrics. Those people need data and information about their physical state, but they surely do not need to own the device that scans them once a week, if they can pay a group membership fee that is 100 times smaller than the price of this health screening device. We can be sure that 100 people can agree to co-own a device that is located near to them and provides access for cheap health screening on a daily basis, instead of paying a doctor who is not able to do the daily screening of 100 people per day for all days of the week. We need great co-ownership models and object library systems that solve the scarcity problem, otherwise we will destroy the earth by breaking it apart for resources that are needed to produce the new technologies that we will encounter in the future. A good ideology is the harder part of the solution. People do not change as fast as superior technology does change the world. Open and free design will enable real world solutions that will lead to real world changes as quickly as they are used by real world manufactures of products that exist today and do not need to appear magically in a distant future. Large scale co-operation and distributed co-ownership is much more possible than it was 10 years ago. A better style of co-operativism is much more possible now, because the Internet is making a lot more possible than was possible at the time, when communism was pop. The Internet itself is a good example of a new breed of co-operativism and distributed collaboration that is at the natural core of the human spirit. Collective communism was a system where everybody is owned by all and nobody owns anything substantial to look after. Enforced collectivism is bad, because nobody feels responsible. That is how the USSR broke down. In the co-operativism network everybody is involved and benefits from sharing and co-owning parts of the network. That is how Linux was build and that is how the Internet was made possible by it. The underlying technologies of the Internet are the result of the real world co-operativism. We would love to see something comparable that capitalism or communism can claim to have produced. There are co-ownership societies that build housing. There are co-owned co-operatives that produce goods. It just is that the efforts from the disconnected co-operations did not result into a decentralized organization or a country-wide system just yet. The decentralized, digital co-operation between people is just the starting point which will build new thinking patterns between people and emerge into the physical world at an increasing rate. Collectivism and Capitalism has no chance in the connected world of people who co-operate and co-own together. An excellent example of co-ownership is an automatic, driver-less car that could cost little to co-own with 10 other people, who can use the car in a non-stop cycle of automated short trips with 2 to 3 cars for 15 people who live close to each-other. In such an arrangement you would own 20% of 3 automatic cars and share them among 15 other people who live close to you. Co-ownership and co-operative sharing of objects in a publicly-served library system is a way out of this destructive cycle of being forced to pay more than others can afford, because we do not need to own all of the non-daily stuff, but just need to have an access to it, if we need to use something for a week or two. Tools are a perfect example of this logic. Some tools are used once a year for one week. Thank you for supporting the creative commons movement and remember that we are just getting warmed-up, before we wage a full scale battle for the decentralized democratic co-operativism !

What is FIRST-SALE DOCTRINE? What does FIRST-SALE DOCTRINE mean? FIRST-SALE DOCTRINE meaning - FIRST-SALE DOCTRINE definition - FIRST-SALE DOCTRINE explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. The first-sale doctrine is a legal concept playing an important role in U.S. copyright and trademark law by limiting certain rights of a copyright or trademark owner. The doctrine enables the distribution chain of copyrighted products, library lending, giving, video rentals and secondary markets for copyrighted works (for example, enabling individuals to sell their legally purchased books or CDs to others). In trademark law, this same doctrine enables reselling of trademarked products after the trademark holder put the products on the market. The doctrine is also referred to as the "right of first sale," "first sale rule," or "exhaustion rule." The first-sale doctrine is one of the traditional safety valves. Copyright law grants a copyright owner an exclusive right "to distribute copies or phonorecords of the copyrighted work to the public by sale or other transfer of ownership, or by rental, lease, or lending." 17 U.S.C. 106(3). This is called "distribution right" and differs from the copyright owner's "reproduction right" which involves making copies of the copyrighted works. Rather than the right to copy, the distribution right involves the right to transfer physical copies or phonorecords (i.e., recorded music) of the copyrighted work. For example, the distribution right could be infringed when a retailer acquires and sells to public unlawfully made audio or video tapes. Although the retailer may not have copied the work in any way and may not have known that the tapes were made unlawfully, he nevertheless infringes the distribution right by the sale. The distribution right allows the copyright owner to seek redress from any member in the chain of distribution. The first-sale doctrine creates a basic exception to the copyright holder's distribution right. Once the work is lawfully sold or even transferred gratuitously, the copyright owner's interest in the material object in which the copyrighted work is embodied is exhausted. The owner of the material object can then dispose of it as he sees fit. Thus, one who buys a copy of a book is entitled to resell it, rent it, give it away, or destroy it. However, the owner of the copy of the book will not be able to make new copies of the book because the first-sale doctrine does not limit copyright owner's reproduction right. The rationale of the doctrine is to prevent the copyright owner from restraining the free alienability of goods. Without the doctrine, a possessor of a copy of a copyrighted work would have to negotiate with the copyright owner every time he wished to dispose of his copy. After the initial transfer of ownership of a legal copy of a copyrighted work, the first-sale doctrine exhausts copyright holder's right to control how ownership of that copy can be disposed of. For this reason, this doctrine is also referred to as the "exhaustion rule." The doctrine was first recognized by the Supreme Court of the United States in 1908 (see Bobbs-Merrill Co. v. Straus) and subsequently codified in the Copyright Act of 1976, 17 U.S.C. § 109. In the Bobbs-Merrill case, the publisher, Bobbs-Merrill, had inserted a notice in its books that any retail sale at a price under $1.00 would constitute an infringement of its copyright. The defendants, who owned Macy's department store, disregarded the notice and sold the books at a lower price without Bobbs-Merrill's consent. The Supreme Court held that the exclusive statutory right to "vend" applied only to the first sale of the copyrighted work.
