An example of how a Sweat Equity set up might look:
VNTRS builds your digital product and we reinvest a percentage of our fees.
In general we reinvest all our profit and take cash payment only to cover team salaries and overhead.
We invest cash in a share issue like any other investor. However, that cash is then invoiced back, giving the company a pool of hours from VNTRS consultants with a credit of X%. The remaining Y% that is financed by the company/other investors is invoiced on a monthly basis
An example of how a Joint Venture set up might look:
VNTRS starts a new company (maybe together with another entrepreneur). This joint venture then invests e.g. 5 MSEK and obtains e.g. 51% of the company.
The VNTRS team works for reduced fees over an agreed period of time or agreed scope, corresponding to the valuation of the shares VNTRS holds after the investment of the joint ventures partner.
The joint venture partner can minimise juridical, operational or financial risks except for the investment and might have an option to buy out VNTRS and integrate the joint venture into the core business in the future.
