Business leaders should take care of consultants carefully. Just because someone has a good reputation or has expertise doesn`t mean they`re a good advisor or there`s the level of good chemistry needed. The Founder Institute recommends that an entrepreneur work with a potential consultant for at least a month and spend at least 8 hours together before discussing the FAST agreement. The FAST agreement includes a three-month „pitfall“ in equity admission, which makes it possible to end an unproductive advisory relationship without having the weight of the equity allocation in the first three months. The advisors referred to in the FAST agreement are founders and senior managers for strategic advice through advisory board roles, and these advisors are normally compensated by equity.
