It’s the golden rule. He who has the gold, makes the rules. If he has the cash you need and that’s the only way you can proceed, I’d say it’s worth it. Try calculating what your time is worth compared to what your friend is willing to invest. You may find that he is actually getting the raw end of the deal, but if he’s willing to risk his investment for the potential reward, it’s a win/win.
