I know several people who have tried to do this, the problem they have always come across is cutting up the equity and profits, two, control over the company and three never getting enough venture capital.
I wish you the best of luck, what kind of partners are you looking for?
1. cutting up the profits? I`m not sure what the problem is here. The corporation has "X" amount in expenses (IE COGS) and "Y" sales the difference would be the profits, which would be split btween the two parties, the idea generator would do with his/her half as pleases the corporation would keep the profits and use it for the development of additional products,
2. It is a corporation, the people submitting their ideas would have no control over the corporation. Just like the people who go to McDonalds for lunch have no say in the way the rest. is being managed ( with the exception of their ability not to patronize the business)
3. you are right venture capital could be a tough one, But if i can create enough vested interest and benefits for the organizations success, Any and all financing needs will be eliminated.
Am I missing something???
