Moneyless Business Plans

Make good agreements on returns on investment to projects, and get companies contribute in assets.
  [vote for,

So, you don't have money, but want to realize that great idea. You need some parts, machines, human labor, and you know that company X has plenty of those parts, and company Y has got machines, and company Z has people, that it could spare for the project, if the returns on investment were plausible, at least in form of marketable products, that they could themselves sell...

So, you pick the phone, and ... no.

So, you draft a good agreement, that derives the returns on investment based on the list of contributions made, and relative market prices (including your own work) of the contributions at the time of contribution. Everyone realizes that's a fair game, where they don't have much to lose, but a lot to gain if you're successful. So they jump in on your creative adventure.

Aha. Just to make sure, you record everything all those contributions on a block-chain. Once production starts, all contributors become benefactors, and starts getting the products created or share in them, with which they can do whatever they want. To get them interested, you give estimates of quality, quantity and schedule of items to be produced.

-=== To elaborate on what those "good" agreements are like. ===-

       Collaboration like this is great in principle, but unfortunately people are greedy, and some-one (probably an accountant or manager) will want more of the pie than you are prepared to offer.

Negotiate, I guess...

       How do you quantify this?

       Hmm... blockchain as a contract enforcement mechanism... I see some potential here.
