What percent of the "profits" do you take? Can you explain how ESOFund would work in the situation I outlined above?

Each of our deal is custom tailored to the specific situation. In the situation above, we would help provide the 300k upfront and then we would negotiate terms. We aim to take less than half of the ultimate proceeds, but that ultimately depends on how the company exits. We don't require any transfer or pledge of stock and as a result, we take on a lot of counter party risk. We aim to price it in such a way where it is a good deal for the both of us. As you can imagine though, the deals that cost more money upfront requires a high payoff in the future. The other advantage we offer is that we can move extremely quickly. While other firms might take a few months to decide, we've closed deals in less than 24 hours before.
