The Solo 401k is a retirement account, which is meant for passive investing. Running an active business inside the 401k (like a start-up) is prohibited by the IRS and could trigger Unrelated Business Income Tax (UBIT).

UBIT can be an extremely expensive tax and eat into your retirement account savings and profits!

Keep active business outside of the Solo 401k and passive investments inside the Solo 401k.
