Why VCs Don't Sign NDAs
Brad Feld has a good post on why VCs don't sign NDAs.
I have been in this business for 20 years and to my knowledge, I have never signed one.
Dave Jilk's comment on Brad's post is probably accurate as well:
- Separate from your reasons, I think the underlying reason VCs don't sign NDAs is that they don't have to. They're the ones with the checkbooks -- simple negotiating power instantiated as a standard practice in the industry. ALL of us could claim your same reasons for not wanting to sign NDAs -- I don't like to sign them -- but I don't always have the negotiating power to say no.
