Conditions of the deal between Founder and Hacker can be negotiated, but the typical one could be
1. No money in the deal: Founder vests the tech team with up to 25% shares of the fintech company for the first 6 Month of the work. Tech team creates the MVP and gets money for further development when the founder raises an investment round.

2. Some money in the deal (preferable): a tech team invests 6 Month of their work with the lowest pay rate for 5-10% shares of a fintech company.

3. FTh gets success fee - 10% from the amount, vested by founder. So if the deal is done with 25% option for a tech team, FTh fee (option) should be 2.5%.
FTh doesn't sign any NDA before the deal between a founder and hacker is negotiated.
FTh helps to attract investments into the deal at the very early stage of the business. FTh helps to provide a minimum salary for the tech team in case the product is difficult and needs a long time development.
