Michael Yavonditte, CEO of Hashable, talks about Issuing Stock, Marketing and Developing the Product

I interviewed the fabulous Michael Yavonditte about starting Hashable.com, a relationship tracking tool that relies on social tagging.

In part II of our interview, (here’s Part I), Yavonditte goes deep on such questions as how many shares of stock to issue and how to structure the company (C-Corp vs. LLC). Yavonditte explains that he has an unusual “dual” startup structure, in which he controls the board and the stock. “I also put in a lot of money myself…which entitles me to this kind of structure.”

Tomorrow in Part III, Yavonditte talks about his entrepreneurial idols and what his biggest mistake has been so far.
