There are two obvious ways to structure a no money down deal with no risk in Solar Motor Works technology development.
a) This can consist of co-signing on a loan with leans on the real estate.
Once the building is cash flowing, the building is refinanced and the
investor's name is removed form the deal. The security is in the
building and down deposit (10-25%) added by Brian. To do 3-4 buildings
(1.5 million each) would take several years to cycle through due to
Brian's limited funds.
b) Creating a development partnership, similar to that proposed to an airbag company (see classical funding methods, large corporations), for example. By having Brian do engineering work that would be advantageous to the investor's firm, critical strategic advantages and access to strategic patents can be achieved.
The money is refunded immediately and at the investor's option on the
third year, and taxes are filed to show a sales refund. This shows an
income for years which Brian can use to buy buildings and create the
cash flow to do development work that in turn benefits both Solar Motor
Works and the investor's company. It is a win-win zero risk deal.
The risk is nearly zero as well as the cost. If Brian fails in some way, the investor gets a highly discounted building that can be sold likely at a profit.
Basically Brian is using the investor's financial stature to lift Solar Motor Works,
which in turns lifts the investor's company by giving access to critical Solar
Motor Works technology. In the case of an Airbag company, this could double to triple their business which would not be possible by the investor alone without Solar Motor Works. Such a plan has been validated by a lawyer and
CPA. It is a "Zero down, Billion dollar deal".
