So he is on the board of a company that provided equity free grants to startups.

TIL that if I accept a grant from a company they now own my company.

edited the post to reflect this possibility. Trying to find a source for how voat was funded and whether or not it was an investment by y combinator or a grant from one of its daughter companies.

Do you understand what a grant really is and how it confers no ownership? Have you ever received a grant or scholarship?

Ahh now I understand what you were talking about. This bit yeah sorry I had like 70 something messages. I do know what a grant is but I also know that startup seeders generally have an agreement that they make people sign. The title is a bit sensationalist and I should have likely made it something a little less so. I need to update this post to reflect what's going on anyways I'll include that as well. Updated.
