50-50 co-founder situation. I’ve done 99% of work for 8 years and brought on a co-founder in a new venture with him where he promised to bring in $200k financing and sweat equity. He’s done pretty much nothing and puts his head in the sand when issues come up and shirks responsibility. I can’t take it any longer, especially the communication shut-down despite many emails and texts over many weeks.
Next step is to pay a lawyer to look through our agreement to see how to split up. Would walk away except for an outstanding bill on an unfiled patent application that we owe a lawyer and want to retain patent I’ve developed. He paid out of pocket for initial lawyer fee.
Any advice or ideas?
