Entrepreneurial Studies: How do you motivate employees for superb performance.

None of the above. Pay people exceedingly well, take incredibly good care of them, give them ample time off, full days to themselves, regular sabbaticals, incredible people as teammates, lots of control over their work, etc. — Jason Fried (@jasonfried) February 27, 2020

Entrepreneurial Studies: Which will you prefer, 1% equity stake or competitive salary ?

As a personal anecdote, equity in both Coinbase and Airbnb is worth much more than my already competitive salary. Some of that equity has already realized, but likely more of it will realize in upcoming years. I was happy, even when earlier employees and founders got more than me — Karri Saarinen (@karrisaarinen) February 28, 2020

Entrepreneurial Studies: Who benefits more from issuing equity, Owners or Employees ?

Giving out equity in startups benefits ownership way more than employees. It allows the owners to push employees harder and harder because “you’ve got skin in the game now… you’re an owner.” No you aren’t. Owning less than 1% of anything isn’t ownership. — Jason Fried (@jasonfried) February 27, 2020

Entrepreneurial Studies: How would you reward your employees adequately.

Leadership Studies: Are You Bottle-necked?

Leaders who don’t ask questions are bottlenecks. Assume that you don’t know, even if you think you do. Ask open questions. Make it your job to ask questions that help others figure things out.

Entrepreneurial Studies: Situational Analysis of using debt investors vs equity investors.

14) Now let's say our company is growing up. And we have a strong sense that if we put $1 into ads, it will produce $2 in new revenue. We should take some debt to fund this cust acq. We KNOW we can pay it back and this capital will be cheaper than equity to grow the biz. — Elizabeth Yin (@dunkhippo33) February 14, 2020

Entrepreneurial Studies: Is this an ideal situation for using equity investors?

13) So let's say we are starting a co. We have no revenue. We don't know our business model. In this case, we'd rather take an equity deal, because we probably won't even quality for any debt providers or the interest will be too ridiculous to compensate for their risk. — Elizabeth Yin (@dunkhippo33) February 14, 2020

Entrepreneurial Studies: Which is better, An Equity investor or A Debt Investor ?

11) In general, you want to take equity when things are quite risky / not guaranteed of working. And you want to take debt when you just need working capital but it's a near slam dunk you are going to be able to use money to make money immediately. — Elizabeth Yin (@dunkhippo33) February 14, 2020
