But these structures can be complex and come with risks. Today’s letter will cover the takeaways from the Blueprint discussion, including:
When OpCo-PropCo structures are useful;
How the panelists have seen OpCo-PropCo structures successful deployed;
Structuring questions and pitfalls;
Investor interest and perspectives on the OpCo-PropCo model;
The future of the model and recommendations for entrepreneurs.
