    I'm new to the startup space so, I'm unfamiliar with proper etiquette and caveats. Before discussing our multi-million idea with others, should we have an NDA in place? If not, how do we go about discussing our idea and getting others' support without giving it away to the unscrupulous?

    • Pete E.

      Hi Charles, everything discussed here is on the record and not covered by NDA. It's an open forum for discussing the challenges associated with a successful startup. I highly encourage all to attend and save the NDAs for partners and contractors where a deeper discussion is needed.
