Lynx’s cornerstone: The SWEAT Note

High legal costs and the lack of a standard and fair framework have prohibited sweat equity from being a viable fundraising option for most early-stage companies. Lynx’s Simple Work for Equity Agreement & Terms (or SWEAT Note) makes sweat equity deals easy, aligning interests for long-term success.
