Entreprenuers and Equity split

The Equity Equation
An investor wants to give you money for a certain percentage of
your startup. Should you take it? You're about to hire your first
employee. How much stock should you give him?

These are some of the hardest questions founders face. And yet
both have the same answer:

1/(1 - n)

Awesome one

The Strangest Market Stat You’ll Read All Day

Since the beginning of the 2006, here are the cumulative S&P 500 returns by days of the week:

Monday 1.40%

Tuesday -0.36%

Wednesday 18.72%

Thursday 4.36%

Friday -0.61%

So what’s the deal with Hump Day? It’s responsible for over
three-quarters of the S&P 500’s return. And today’s data point will
make it even more.

Told ya it was a strange stat.

Wealth in desh :-)

Bombay Shining - Sepia Mutiny

According to the latest Forbes ranking, the global center of desi wealth is Bombay, not Silicon Valley (thanks, WGIIA).
India is the only South Asian country with billionaire private citizens
(though a Sri Lankan Tamil émigré to Malaysia made the list), and
Bombay has the most.

Vinod Khosla fell below the cutoff, as did most desi American techies except Ram Shriram,
an angel investor in Google who is now apparently the wealthiest desi
in the U.S. So with India’s recent economic growth, Indians are making
more money by staying home than emigrating, quite a reversal, even
though most who emigrated were not born into ultra-wealthy families.
And these figures are in dollars, not even adjusted for purchasing
power in the desh.
