Partnerships we look for:

 

Autoscalp is just considering the following four types of partnerships, no exceptions:

[Intellectual property of autoscalp tools will not be shared among the parts]

 

1) New Division, as royalty franchising based spin-off or SPV:


Also known as Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV)

Creating a new division inside your company or starting a spin-off from it
allocating part of your company shares as stock options .

Royalty franchising contract at net of outsourcing contracts and budgets for R&D costs :

either with royalties as fixed percentage of profits
(example: 35% of profits is to be returned as royalties to autoscalp)

or with royalties depending on a pre-defined target
if +2% monthly target is surpassed, autoscalp gets 50% of the profits
as royalties
if monthly target is failed (from 0 to 1.99%) autoscalp gets 15% of the profits as royalties

 

 

2) Mudaraba:

Further details of Mudaraba and some terms and conditions for Mudaraba contracts
Mudaraba

 

To see how Mudaraba works see this link:

Mudaraba Contract Explained

 

3) Joint Venture - Start up

 

(see this link for an example of Joint Venture contract)

Process of partnership for creation of a joint venture consists in three phases.
As requested we publish the steps required for doing a joint venture start-up:

a) NDA: non disclosure agreement, NCA: non circumvention agreement,
where we both sign that any detail cannot be disclosed and that there is a real common ground.

b) Due diligence: to make sure we both are committed toward the same objectives

c) Reciprocal Commitment - Escrow:

  • autoscalp gives the license to use autoscalp models to an escrow agent of common choice
  • counterpart company gives the counter value of the license to the escrow agent (usually a lawyer)

d) Commencing the Startup with shares distributed as earlier shown in point 1).

 

4) Business-to-business (B2B) : black box

R&D budget, setup and expenses for the first three months have to be paid in advance.

Royalties configuration:

royalties can be paid as fixed percentage of profits
(example: 35% of profits is to be returned as royalties to autoscalp)

or

royalties are paid depending on a pre-defined target
if +2% monthly target is surpassed, autoscalp gets 50% of the profits as royalties
if monthly target is failed (from 0 to 1.99%) autoscalp gets 15% of the profits as royalties

 

Contract types:

Royalty franchising contract with multiple counterparts (specific for multi branch funds)

or

Software as a service , royalty based, for a single counterpart.

 

A few examples:

Venture Capital / business angels / private equity : can use our models as alternative differentiation method (order flow scale economy) in order to generate more alpha. Fund Incubators: can create many start-ups around our tech tree and expertise improving learning curve and obtaining a scale economy.

Fund distributors: can organize a co-joined offer to provide our models to multiple funds or multiple units in order to generate more alpha.

Market concentrators and dark pools: can use our models to defend themselves against market maker platforms.

HNWI, asset managers, family offices and Funds can use our expertise and know how including , models, feeds, signals either to generate alpha or as an alternative differentiation method or even to create a fully operational R&D division.

Producer and exporters of stream flow delivered goods (oil and gas) can use our specific models to hedge against base currency oscillations of physical delivery goods occurring during production, shipment, delivery phases.

National and Quasi-National Electric Power Grids, power producers and exporters. Power consumption peaks are sudden by definition and thus might create unexpected exposure to foreign currencies to the power exporter.

Also consider a combination in vertical clusters of the above examples can increase either learning curve and scale economy , reduce know-how cost and speed up alpha production.

Note: for Brand and copyrights reasons we don't allow white labeling or re-branding our know how.

 

Country list guideline :



Autoscalp is receiving many evaluation proposals coming from various countries

Autoscalp owner uses autoscalp himself as his personal speculative tool and took 7 years to be developed and tested and is under continuous improvement. At Autoscalp we are aware that underneath an apparent business proposal can lie a hostile "procurement outsourcing" scheme and autoscalp has seasoned experience in actively prosecuting direct and indirect intellectual property theft attempts.

We received many proposals which turned out to be poorly disguised attempts to steal intellectual property, social engineering baits or even or scam attempts, so we regularly report such unlawful attempts to NFA and CFTC , FSA and to the Emirates Securities and Commodities Authority.

We also carbon copy them to the following sites: www.rsa.com www.antifraudintl.org www.419baiter.com www.419scam.org

Proposals rejected: more than 300

Most likely reasons why we reject counterparts:
ordered by statistical relevance, most relevant on top.

counterpart was not institutional ( we don't even read it )

counterpart failed to read partnership and disclaimer

counterpart failed to disclose core data

counterpart resides in a country we are not interested in

counterpart tried to re-negotiate after the handshake

counterpart masked a hidden hostile intent

About NDA-NCA Agreements, overview :

We require signing a mutual Non Disclosure Agreement and a Non Compete Agreement
before any discussion concerning autoscalp models can even occur. After those agreements

you will allow our lawyers take information on you and your company

further steps will be depending on the partnership type chosen by your company

Specification about eventual guarantees: will be in the form of lawyer deposited escrows. By previous experiences: P.O.F. (proof of funds) is not enough and just brings more cross checks during the due diligence process.

 

Autoscalp applies pro-active defense on its intellectual property:

Some frequently asked questions about copyrights from the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO)

 

This is necessary because many proposals we received up to now were masked attempts to
either get Autoscalp model out of our hands or even markup against our own model,
we then decided to engage in pro-active defense of our intellectual property:

though the help of the best lawyers specialized in International copyright laws

though the help of the best law firms specialized in intellectual property protection

through a very peculiar and proactive behavior during the start-up phases

through a wise stock options and profit fees combination at back end

 

About the Non Disclosure Agreement :

Your company will not be allowed to disclose our partnership agreement to any third party. This is convenient on both sides, on your side because your competitors won't know you're using our models and on our side because we don't want our know how to become public or redistributed . Protecting our intellectual property is a core issue to us.

About the Non Compete Agreement :

We make a pro-active use of the Non Circumvention agreement specifically created to avoid some of the aforementioned issues and to protect our brand and image. Then by signing our Non Circumvention Agreement your company certifies that:

your company is not trying to act as proxy for a third party trying to appropriate of our proprietary tools

your company is not trying to sell mortgages or reversed mortgages to us

your company is not involved in procurement outsourcing schemes against us

your company is not playing "introductory broker" practices against us

your company is not involved in "captive hosting" practices against us

your company did not lose more than 20% of its principal.

your company is not going to keep more than 50% of the profits

your company is registered as an institutional investor in its country

your company does not invest in business considered unethical by Sharia Law

 

Why we've chosen a Seed Capital Startup :

Because through seed capital , a cloud of institutional stake holders, makes us sure that no investor or stakeholder becomes too strategic to cripple or derail the startup project. As this decision comes from previous experiences such choice is not object of discussion with any potential partners.

About potential market counterparts :

Our models don't use leverage by default and assume autoscalp to be already connected to primary price feeds and need no "introductions" or "facilitation" to get access to primary sources.

About other counterparts :

To protect our brand , image and our copyrights : we don't allow re-branding or white labeling our tools. Any disclosure of the usage of such tools will also be expressly forbidden to your company by the reciprocal NDA your company is required to sign before any negotiation can take place.
