The Case Of An Investor And 3 Co-Founders

“This is Paul Graham from Y Combinator. We’d like to fund you.”

“Ah … well … so … one of the co-founders isn’t here. I should probably ask him first. Let me call you back in five minutes.”

Let us say that you are Paul Graham. You know that this start-up has a great business case. All the 3 co-founders have impressive backgrounds, and are passionate action-oriented personalities. They have also divided the equity equally among them. Moreover, the terms of the investment sought are also reasonable.
