Gov tokens and existing companies

a startup i work with is in the middle of raising money the traditional way via VC’s, and I was thinking they should look into doing something like offering a gov token in exchange for voting rights similar to yearn. this is an online business that has no connection to crypto, but I think it would be cool to try. obviously there would need to have plenty of legal and tax research done, and plenty of other things I’m certain I am not aware of, but I can’t help but think it would be a cool experiment to raise money for an existing business with existing customers.
any input? stupid idea? terrible idea?
