Maybe the person putting up the money has more experience or more knowledge in the given field.
Not everyone is a control freak.
The same way you can control a business when someone else owns it. There are plenty of CEOs who control a hell of a lot before something goes wrong.
It isn’t always that way.
I don’t completely disagree with this. But the whole point seems to be that some people don’t have the necessary capital to make a go on their own. This is a good opportunity for them to see if their idea is viable or not.
And I personally know some teachers who can hardly go to the bathroom themselves without assistance. So what?
But most schools that fail are short on ideas and don’t have a clear strategy. I think the whole point here is that if you have valid ideas, then you can make money from it. And I don’t agree with the assessment that opening a school is risky at best
You know the answer to that. But what if you have a good idea? I think I pretty well understand what Fox is looking for. However, I don’t think it will be easy to find many people with good ideas who are actually willing to put up the cash.
These things can and do happen, sure. No reason for anyone’s feelings to be hurt. But I get the idea the Fox is making an offer that is sincere and that both sides can benefit from. There is no sense of a rip-off. At least from me.
