Where did the name Grubstake come from?
It’s a term from the late 19th century that has fallen out of use, but is completely applicable today:
noun: an amount of material, provisions, or money supplied to an enterprise (originally a prospector for ore) in return for a share in the resulting profits.
verb: provide with a grubstake. The term was coined during the era of gold mining. Miners would come into town and local residents would offer a grubstake in the form of lodging, food, or basic necessities. In exchange, the residents would receive a portion of the profit, or a grubstake.
