Today’s Tip

It’s important to know that most venture capitalists (VC’s) don’t sign non-disclosure agreements (NDAs).

Guy Kawasaki wrote a good comment about this subject a few years ago as follows:

“Before you even start addressing the hard stuff, never ask a venture capitalist to sign a non-disclosure agreement (NDA). They never do. This is because at any given moment, they are looking at three or four similar deals. They’re not about to create legal issues because they sign an NDA and then fund another, similar company–thereby making the paranoid entrepreneur believe the venture capitalist stole his idea. If you even ask them to sign one, you might as well tattoo “I’m clueless!” on your forehead.”
