No, wait, you're looking to "sign writers, and own their work" - so you're a manager now? And managers can produce but "own"?
And you did this just to get meetings... so you're ripping off writers under false pretenses and lying to producers and studios or whoever about why you want to meet them because it sounds like you did all this just to get meetings which strongly suggests you're doing it to pitch your own work, not that of your "clients."
Do please tell us more, and list the name of your company so everyone can see.
Yeah, so many questions. What is a "screenplay development" company?
