So this is sort of like a cross between an angel investor & patreon, and modelled closely on the “benefactor” model of yesteryear. Essentially you pitch yourself on this site, and people “invest” in you. The investor then owns a small, pre-agreed percentage of whatever it is that they do.

This idea is based on a friend of mine who’s company got bought out by a Baron (literally) who pays him a salary, he can do whatever he wants, but anything he does the Baron owns 50% of it.

Lots of problems & holes with it, but the main thrust of it is that there may be incredible inventors & business people out there who just don’t have the time & space to break away from the well paid desk job. Patreon is great, but if someone I’m paying goes big time, there’s no kickbacks for me.
