Company Description

We started Hideout because we wanted to reinvent the idea of a delivery meal. We believe delivery dining should be its own unique experience, as enjoyable as dining out or sharing a home-cooked meal.

I was opening a dumpling restaurant as a side project with the goal of bringing amazing Chinese food into central locations in SF and LA, where it was missing. We saw the potential in delivery, but saw it was lacking. Instead of focusing on ONLY Chinese food ONLY in SF and LA, we decided to bring our favorite foods directly to everyone's door.

Security Description

A SAFE is an agreement between you—the investor—and the company in which the company promises to give you a future equity stake based on the amount you invested. It also involves some kind of a triggering event that must take place in order for you to get your future equity stake. Be careful as you may only get equity if a particular event is triggered.
