Use their investment as a safekeeping for their money so in the event, if the company doesn’t produce any revenue for the first few years you can rest assured that not all the investment dollars have been lost. As a matter of fact, a ten percent portion has been put aside in the event there comes an opportunity to invest it in a vehicle that can continue to provide cash flow.
The concept of OPM is not new. It requires the ability to create value for others in order to increase your own value.
