« Should you take venture capital? | Main | What is unique about venture capital? »



I have run a couple partnerships in my day, and the best advice I can give is to keep the partnerships equal. Anything else is not a partnership and should be classified in a different structure. I agree the whole is greater that the parts...and that each partner brings different value. As long as everyone is maintaining the ethics of the partnership, maintaining the work needed to keep it going, and has an understanding of team a partnership should be divided equally.

Once you start compensating people differently based on performance, the relationships will sour and there will be more conflict. More than that, partners will question the partnership's value.
