i have a question regarding partnership and shareholding.
Following situation. I want to start up a business and therefore I need 250k startup budget. A friend of mine is willing to invest in this business and wants shares.
Now my questions: The money he is giving me is handled like a normal loan, isn't it? And on top he get's shares of the company, but how much?
Let's say everything is done and the business is running, does a shareholder get a part of the monthly profit or does he just own a part of the company without earning monthly income?
I have no clue about shareholding and I would appreciate if someone could explain how that would look like.
