Suppose there has been a non-profit group working together for a couple of years, members have come and gone and at each point in time current members have had equal votes on the decisions the group was making.
Now this group decides to become a corporate and start making money under the same brand/name that was made famous as a non-profit, now the question is, "how should the members distribute the share of this corporate?" (Is there a best practice available?)
Some options are:
- Give current members equal shares from the net profit.
- Give members shares based on their engagement duration. (older members gain more shares, if this is the chosen option should we consider the members who left the group but could come back later?)
- Distribute shares based on members' impact on the group and the history of their efforts and its outcomes.
