How do you determine how much equity should each co-founder receive?

When dealing with money, and more specifically the splitting of money amongst co-founders in a startup, take into consideration the following factors: 

  1. The relative value of the contribution of all the founders 

  2. The amount of time to be committed in the business 

  3. The cash compensation to be paid as an employee 

  4. Whether the founders will be investing cash in the business 

  5. Whether more than one person will maintain control over decision-making 

  6. Vesting dependent upon continued participation in the business
