Just gave a talk to 20 entrepreneurs in an accelerator today about this. The answer I always give: the least amount you can afford to live off of and still stay motivated to build the company

What Adam said. Depending on your equity size and the deal dynamics, sometimes a modest refresh grant subject to vesting will also align you with your investors. They want to see you have skin in the game and tying your financial success to the company’s is putting your money where you mouth is.
