I believe that every entrepreneur eventually has gone through a similar situation, the decision is not easy but yet it is not difficult to answer.

In summary the facts are those that will give the result of those actions were taken, if the team is mature enough will understand clearly that this new developer gets a larger percentage in stocks Company because the expertise that him or her have, if for some reason a collaborator show anger or discontent I think the shirt was never enough to start taking the project forward.
