You have the skills that founders need to succeed, but you don't want to work for free, or forever. An SSA makes it easy to put some skin in the game and build a portfolio.
With a Shared Success Agreement you decide how much to get paid now and how much earn via revenue share. From 0-100%.
Earn a share of the startup's revenue at a multiple that you determine. Invest with your current capacity to create your future cash flows.
SSAs avoid valuation conversations and keeps the cap table clean for the founder. They share cash but keep control.
It's not a liability for the founder because it's based on future revenue. Good news! It's not taxable until payment is made.
Success payments continue only until the payment cap (based on the multiple) is reached. It preserves options for founders.
Legal fees and ambiguity can stop projects from getting started. The SSA makes it simple to get on the same page.
