For example, you may want to consider how to structure the company, equity and ownership, voting rights, investor relations issues, exit strategies, current market trends, legal landscape, etc. At the same time, you may also deal with creating an equity award pool (stock options, restricted stocks, stock appreciation rights, profit sharing, etc.).
