I have a CPG business I started R&D a couple of years ago and launched last year so we are in the growth stage. I have put well into 6 figures into it between product development, trademarks, etc… and have a fair amount of inventory on hand now. I am at the point I need to bring in 2 to 4 other people to handle various areas of the business and prepare to raise capital to either buy an existing manufacturing business in our niche or build one and expand. My initial question is what kind of equity range would I be looking at giving up to co-founders at this point to help build the team to raise equity? What kind of vesting schedule? Or maybe there is a better way to structure this?
