Keep your equity and your options. Share your success.

A founder friendly alternative to equity, debt, or a SAFE.

Shared Success is a new founder friendly funding alternative to equity, debt, or a SAFE.

Define your needs.

Whether you need marketing help, software development, legal services, funding, or something else, choose a Shared Success Agreement to reduce the upfront cash cost and align incentives with key partners.

Set the terms.

Decide how much of your future revenue to put on the line and at what multiple. Find folks who share your vision and are willing to be patient. Skip the conversations about valuation and ownership.

Pay when you succeed.

Repay contributors from your future revenue, ensuring that you succeed together. The faster your revenue grows the better their ROI, so everyone wins. It's not debt - if there's no revenue, no payments are due.

Braden Ericson, from

“We had a developer we wanted to work with but didn't have the budget at the time. We had worked with him in the past, so we were familiar with his skill set. It would be too expensive to figure out how to give him equity as part of his compensation, and he was in Germany which would make it more difficult.

I suggested the Shared Success agreement as a way we could work together since it would be contractual, we would get a discount on his services, and our developer would get the upside of "equity-like" compensation where he gets a piece of revenue. We already had revenue coming in so we negotiated a 2x multiplier at 12% of revenue."
