In between a contractor and an employee

Company wants to hire me not as an employee, but as an independent contractor. Can I ask for something in between?

I approached them for an employee role, they countered with "Get a first contract for us, and we'll bring you on board."
My background and skills match very well to the technical services the company offers. I am Ok with non-employee status to start (it is not uncommon in my industry). However, is there a structure I can request that will pay me some money while I look a for a 1st deal for them?
FYU, it will take me at least 45 days to get them a customer. The reason why they are pursuing me is because I have a good network of potential clients and solid experience with their services. If it matters, they are based in India and their management is known in the industry. They have no U.S. presence currently.
They have asked me to propose my terms of contract to them by tonight. What options can I present them with?
