visas – Visiting the US under VWP as a C-Corp shareholder

I’m in a situation that I haven’t read about, but imagine wouldn’t be super uncommon.

I’m a co-founder of and own 50% of a C-Corp entity. My other founder is a US citizen who owns the remaining 50%. We’re a remote company, and I work as a contractor from Australia.

Am I allowed to visit the US on the VWP to meet my co-founder in person? What would be the best explanation for this?
