Why we don‘t sign NDAs
Given the number of business plans we receive, it is our policy not to sign NDAs (non-disclosure agreements). If we were to sign every NDA request, the web of NDAs that would result would be virtually unmanageable. Our reputation is a reflection of our professionalism and our ability to maintain the trust of entrepreneurs we work with by treating them as we ourselves wish to be treated and taking care of the confidentiality of all information received. If an entrepreneur cannot provide us with an executive summary or a business plan with enough information in order to get us excited about their company without signing an NDA, we will not consider it.
