Hello all, I am planning to meet with an entrepreneur who created an internet business based on marketing companies who sell green "eco" products and services. We have been communicating through email and plan to meet for lunch next week. Her business is essentially a very small amazon type online company but only for green products. I like her idea and she has been working on the business for 2 years. From what she has told me she has taken a bad turn in health and cant manage the company much longer so she wants to sell it. I am interested in the venture and the site intrigues me but I have some proplems: - I will never offer her close to what she is asking for the company, and I believe no one else will either. -I don't have any experience with an online business at all. So I would need a partner who is savy with dot com type business. Any suggestions would be great. I am planning as of now to make a proposition with her. She says that she really believes in the company and wants to see it succeed but cant continue to run it. So I am thinking of asking for equity in the company and taking over management but still leaving her with a large steak in the company. she would show me the ins and outs and share her Ideas and I would learn more about this business and how she has been running it. In exchange I would let her keep a large amount of equity forever while I eventually take over managemnt fully and she can just eventually sell out her equity or keep it and act as an advisor. I believe I have some good ideas for the company but need a mentor as far as how to run and navigate an online venture. (Im not totally dumb when it comes to technology and internet, but im not comfortable enough to run a dot com on my own either). Does this sound like a terrible deal for her? p.s I know you will probably want to see the company but I want some feedback first.
