How many companies or LLCs exist where at least one of the partners did not put up capital to receive equity in the LLC? For example, in an online business one partner may pay all of the bills while the other partner does all of the development work.
Is there a ratio: such as, half of all companies/LLCs have a least one partner who does not put up capital to receive equity? Or maybe, an approximate number of companies/LLCs that form a year that have at least one partner that did not put up capital to receive equity?
Do you know of any notable companies/LLCs that started like this; such as Facebook?
Thanks in advance for your advice!
