Famed Tech Venture Capitalist wrote a post back in 2010 titled ‘No Conflict, No Interest’.
Suggesting that sometimes the trade off of having people interested and invested in your thing is that they may have a conflict of interest.
But that’s ok. At least they’re interested!
And that means they will hopefully have some knowledge, skills, experience and abilities in areas specifically related to your thing.
As long as there is integrity, a conflict of interest doesn’t have to be damaging.
So don’t worry too much about avoiding conflicts of interest.
First, worry about getting the interest.
