Investing In Graduates

This is an interesting idea, thanks to Andrew Gowasack for the link. Upstart allows recent college graduates to find people to pay off their student loans with the idea that the debt reduction will allow them to follow their entrepreneurial ideas. You agree to give the backers a percent of your salary for a 5-10 year period to entice them to pay off your student debt. It is interesting but may lead to a double whammy should your venture fail and you now have to pay part of your corporate salary away to boot.
