What is a Scout?

Launch Factory Scouts refer individuals that they think could be either a candidate for the Founders Recruitment Process or another Scout.

Great candidate referrals are individuals the referring scout believes could successfully develop and lead a startup company. Alternatively, great scout referrals are people who can refer potential candidates or other scouts.

Scout Compensation

In exchange for their referrals, scouts will have the opportunity to earn real shares of stock in our new company.

Launch Factory is giving 100,000 shares of stock in our new company to the scouts who directly refer either of our selected Founders. But that’s not all – the scout who referred that scout will receive 50,000 shares, and the scout who referred them will receive 25,000 shares, and so on.
