Suppose that Alice is the developer/founder of the Uber app and finds an investor for the startup company resulting in the existing Uber company. Suppose also that there is no Lyft or UberEats app out there yet. Which one of the following is possible for Alice to do and not be successfully sued by the investor:
Alice thinks Uber is very good but needs some minor modifications. For example she likes to work with drivers only between 40-50! Or she likes to get a cup of coffee to riders. So she decided to write a new application and name it Lyft with my her money.
Alice thinks it would be a good idea if the company also delivers foods instead of transfering people. But it should be a new brand name and application, so she writse the UberEats application and names it "EasyFood". (So the UberEats will never have existed).
For which of these two scenarios could the Uber investor sue Alice with reasonable hope of success?
Also I would like to know, can an investor force a company founder or employee to sign an agreement like "You have no rights to use our co-business idea or any similar ideas to establish a new business like "Lyft" or "UberEats" with your own or any other investors"? Is such a thing possible at all?
