I want to be a "serial entrepreneur." Hypothetically, assuming I have little problem accessing capital or generating ideas, what would be the best way to set up my operation? Would it be as follows:
Start with a holding company. The capital used to set up this holding company will come from myself and investors (the investors are essentially investing in my ability). Lets say I put in 20K and others 180K for a market cap of 200K, of which i will own 10% of the company. However, I would like the option to buy outshareholders/investors if certain goals are reached - say a 500% roi in 24 months. In addition to starting new companies/ventures and making investments, this holding company will assume the costs of my basic office expenses, market research, a modest salary, etc. basically the costs associated with exploring and implementing new ventures.
Does that all sound right? Would I personally own shares in the holding company or would i own another company or trust that does that? Probably not I assume?
Also, not that it really matters, but would the 180K or 90% of stock definitely need to be non voting stock for me to be assured of running the holding company autonomously - ie choosing my own directors, ceo etc.
