Spinoffs ($1M for initial development then raise $5M)
Acquisitions ($2M per engineer)
Agencies ($250K per campaign)
Grants (1000 grants, $100K each)
Partners ($1M per campaign)
Studios ($10M initial funds)
Toward community-driven development in the long term, how to balance our top-down control versus external autonomy?
It really depends on the initiative, but in general, I think acquisition and agency are more likely to work out better since it’s proven by many other companies. You can more control on the quality and deliverable from the acquisition and agencies.
