While pursuing our 1st paid client deal we are selecting value-added investors for our CHF 1m pre-seed round, and seeking an exceptional 2nd tech or business development full cofounder (I still have 85% of the shares).

After a successful phase in which the candidate invests a few hours (over days or weeks) in contributing to the company and to test the relationship - we'll sign a cofounder contract (60-100% of time) which contain suspension clause until when and if we close the pre-seed round (but no more than a few months).

Essential for many investors is that the cofounder also has "skin in the game". So therefire the compensation terms would include: generous cash compensation, generous shares options over time (4-30%), and also a a 2-way committments to invest an amount of cash proportional to the cofounder net worth, but not lower than CHF 20k or higher than CHF 200k, conditionally to when and if we close the CHF 1'000'000 pre-seed round at a very favourable valuation (half or even les than other investors).
