Not directly.

A company would be formed, Soul Daddy Restaurants e.g., and each investor would own a share based on their investment. The judges invest cash while the founder invests recipes and the idea. In the beginning, their investments are worth nothing. As the company grows and expands, the company earns profits that are taxed.

Also, if the founder draws a salary, that would be taxable as income.
