The RillUp Revolution

RillaUP brings talented people together with Entrepreneurs who need help.
 
The people, are Rillas, the method, is Guerrilla Startups.
 

You have an idea, but don’t know where to start?

Starting a new business can be very expensive. There are design, production, development, and advertising costs. Don’t forget legal costs and considerations or longterm business planning.
 
There’s a solution:
 
Each of these areas demands expert attention if you want your business to have a chance to succeed.
 
This gateway has prevented countless individuals with great ideas from taking the first step.
 
Worse than that:
 
If you have some capital to get started and invest in a freelancer or advisor, there is no guarantee that the individual will put forth their best effort.
 
In most cases, their fees are flat, and motivation is limited. They are concerned with getting paid rather than that you succeed.
 
Here’s what you do:
 
Search RillaUp partners for the right person to fit into your business.  You can either get a one-time rockstar to knock out a great website, logo, or professional advice.
 
You understand they only get paid when you do, so they need to believe in your business.  You’re going to be paying these people a premium over time, but if it gets over that giant staring line, it’s worth every penny.
 

You want to partner

You’re awesome in your industry, you have great ideas, you make big clients lots of money.
 
This is what we think:
 
You deserve the opportunity to make 10X your normal rate with a company that you help launch.
 
Browse the current projects,  find a project, and a founder that you believe in.
 
These are the type of gigs everyone wants but until now have rarely been able to be a part of.
 

The Solution

The Rilla Founder brings their ideas, skills, and any capital to the table as a project.
 
They identify the areas where they need assistance to get their new venture off the ground.
 
Then, there are two options:
 
The Founder will list their project, post either jobs or partner requests.
 
The Founder can search out qualified Rilla Partners or may be contacted by interested Rillas as well.
 
When a match is made, you will both sign a negotiated contract for the work.
 

Jobs – One time gigs

The Founder can post a specific job with a capped payout.  It’s not a long term deal but can likely grow into a full partnership.
 

Partnerships – You’re in Business

Find the person that you will work well with. Share a belief in this venture, and make it happen.
 
The fee is paid via a percentage of the company profit which the founder designates but is always negotiable.
 
The Founder can end the contract with the stipulation that they will pay an extra 2 months of commissions at the negotiated rate, and four additional months at half the negotiated rate.
