We are looking to acquire business assets using a c-corp and were wondering if anybody had experience qualifying for QSBS. I'd envision we would start a c-corp, issue stock for nominal $ to the founders, then once a target is ready to be acquired, investors and founders would contribute $xx to the c corp in exchange for stock, and then we would use that cash to buy the assets of the target.

Would be curious to speak with anyone who has experience doing this. Thanks in advance.
