My experience as percent of company you get to keep (divided by founders) versus  percent of salary for your position that you could get in the real-world not working for a startup.

Wow! Fascinating charts. Thanks for sharing Eric and Greg!

Fascinating thought that some founders can afford to live on ZERO salary.
