I have been working on developing a website/application, and own the domain, and have done a bunch of design/development work, research, planning/brainstorming, etc. Into a company that has not been registered as a business in any way so far (it’s just a concept, with some design assets and a bit of code and a domain and web server that I’ve owned/ran for 3+ years).
I received an offer from someone who wanted to “partner” and go 50/50 on the project (that they have had 0 involvement in thus far). I agreed that we would explore the idea and see what they could bring to the table and had to offer for their proposed 50%.
I never got a clear answer other than they had access to a datacenter where they could stand up some servers, and had a background in business.
The next day they sent me information to a server they stood up and I threw some basic html/css/php files up to test the apache and other technical stuff with the server, related to hosting a webpage.
I have come to the conclusion that they don’t bring enough value to take 50% of something only I have worked on so far, and have other pending partnership offers coming in.
Am I clear to move forward without him and register the business and everything as planned, or move on with other partnership opportunities?
