Today, I’m going to answer a question from Cedric, a startup founder who is about to outsource the development of the first version of his product.

His question is: “A Web agency proposed to build my app in exchange for equity, should I go with it?”

Cedric and his co-founders are building a health tech startup. They have a deep understanding of their market and have found a great opportunity to build a new service for it.

With only a few investments and no technical co-founders, they are wondering if they should consider the deal a Web agency is proposing, which is to take a big chunk of their startup company equity in exchange for providing software development.

This has become a regularly asked question, and I have my own personal take on it. But if like Cedric, you want to associate with an agency or a developer, watch the video to find out my recommendations.
