Same as everything else that has been, said except to add:
Remember NOT all shares are created equally. Getting the company properly
setup is important and you can have different class of shares with
different rules as they pertain to your company. For example, just because
someone has 1/3 share (for example) doesn't mean you have to give them 1/3
of the vote. Many people in the startups initial days for get this. How
much voting power a shareholder has, *can be* completely independent from
the value of those shares.
Im not saying you should NEVER give out class A shares - especially since
many people may value voting control more than the value of the shares int
he early days anyway, but don't forget that this is another tool at your
disposal to help equalise the value of shares as you split them.
