    Obviously a credible business idea has to be proferred and the money is used to implement the idea. You just need a few to hit and you could make some money.

    Well that's a no brainer for me. I would take the 600k and give up 6% each year. it's like paying for my 401k in advance. If I can keep the interest earned on the 600k over the next 25 years, i'll give 12% for 1.2 million.

    I believe investing the 600k would earn more per year than my 6%, so yes, I would.

    Amen Steve- You would have to be a fool to take a deal like this. Scam is a better word to describe it.

    That's $600k in today's dollars, but salary inflation should help in the recoupment. I assume income will be defined based on their total gross income from their 1040?

    sure at 100k or 200k of income, it does not look like much
    but if the person has a good idea, and 500k of income (30k per year) it starts looking like a good ROI
    Even at 500K, it would take 20 years to recoup your investment. An income of 250K puts you in the top 1.5% of Americans. 500K puts you in the top fraction of one percent. That's an incredible long shot bet. You could do better taking your money to the casino.

    That is not to say I would do such a thing (donate money LOL), but if I were to consider it, I would be looking for a $500k idea, not a 100k idea from the person which received the money.

    Would You Trade 6% of Your Future Earnings For $600k?

    Erickson and two other young social entrepreneurs recently made the decision to, in effect, take themselves public. Through an online marketplace called the Thrust Fund, the three have offered up a percentage of their future lifetime earnings in exchange for upfront, undesignated venture funding. Erickson is willing to swap 6 percent of her future lifetime earnings for $600,000. The other two entrepreneurs, Saul Garlick and Jon Gosier, are each offering 3 percent of future earnings for $300,000...

    Is This a Smart Way to Get Funding?
