Hi Karen! Thanks for your message. We are currently validating the idea of corporate donnors by doing an individual sales process with key contacts in corporations and by being part of startup competitions. (Who knows the guys at UBS would be interested?). Also, we model the interest rates for a 10% per year ROI.
Your other comment, about the VC financing model and the "pass the potato" game, it is very true. One of the main objections of people and organization putting money on it is the lack of liquidity. We are thinking about alternatives to help in this regard.
