6/27    "these are also businesses designed for breakeven in less than six
        months ... Until the first site is launched this is an equity only
        opportunity, with cashflow participation proportional to equity upon
        breakeven"
        Should that read "after" breakeven?  The way the sentence literally
        reads, you don't get a salary, you get equity, and you need to pay
        money to the company proportional to your equity until the company
        makes a profit.

        <DEAD>angel.co/salaries?utm_campaign=salaries<DEAD>
        Most interesting take away after looking at the data for a while:

        options, not the percentages:

        \_ Or at least, so says a VC trying increase his profit margin...
        \_ A VC wants to keep as much of the stock for themselves (and give
           as little to employees as possible).  That maximizes their return.
