Lion Dandelion Tea

Lion Dandelion Tea

Our story starts the morning after a night’s celebrations when LION founder Ray DeRosa woke up to blurry vision. He had triggered a mother-to-son inherited eye disease called Leber’s Neuropathy where your vision slowly declines in just a few days. While there was no known cure in modern medicine, that didn’t stop Ray and his mother from finding one themselves. They turned to plants and home made remedies and sure enough a cure was found in the dandelion. This common, backyard weed opened the doors to a whole new world of potential.

Security Type
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.
