Working for a startup financed through investors

Assalamu Alaikum,

Are there any considerations when applying to work for a company that is not profitable, but pays your salary through investors (angel investors, etc)? Do we need to consider the source of income of the investors or is this excessive?

Secondly, if a company’s product is halal but their revenue is primarily from clients in the finance or restaurant industry, are we allowed to work for such a company?

JazakAllah khair

Assalaamu alaykum,

It is permissible to accept the income.

Allah knows best
