Equity sharing for founders... with strings attached

Sometimes co-founders and early hires bail out before delivering what was promised, taking their shares with them. This is entirely avoidable if you set the right conditions.

Our proprietary Agile Partnership framework helps company founders to share ownership in a safe, fair and proportionate manner. From just £100 a month.

How do Agile Partnerships work?

We’ll help you design bespoke equity-based agreements to safely and gradually release equity to key people, based on what they actually contribute.

Founders set conditions and milestones

Establish some goals to determine how, when and what quantity of equity is released. People need to contribute fully to earn their maximum allocation of shares.

Share ownership efficiently

You can minimise your tax burden by choosing the best method of distributing equity within your partnership. We’ll outline the various share and option schemes available to you.

Protect yourself and other shareholders

Once the rules of the game have been decided everybody will know what is expected of them, and the size of the prize. Nobody will get hurt along the way.

Learn what works for other business owners

We will provide insight into how other founders set up Agile Partnerships and share schemes for their team. There are some tried and tested pathways worth following.
