What happens to cofounder’s vested equity if I leave a startup after 3 years?

It depends.

What is stated in the terms of your signed agreement? Usually, there’s an outlined time period that a person can buy back their equity. It doesn’t matter what you would “like” to do so much as what you “agreed” to do. In the even that you didn’t outline what should happen in this type of situation, you should consult an attorney before making a decision.
