“Hi! I’ve got an idea that I want to talk to you about, but first I need you to sign this non-disclosure agreement”…
We recently read this great article from Stef Lewandowski on Medium (which is a hive of interesting content if you’ve not heard of it) about people’s lack of willingness to talk about their ideas with other people, in the fear that someone would steal them.
We’re here to remind you to socialise your ideas (maybe not the secret sauce) as there’s a huge chasm between Ideas and executing on them to create great Tech/Social Ventures. We’re here to help you get across that chasm (with programs like our Labs Online) if you’re keen for the ride.
In the meantime, go out and evangelise your ideas – talk to people, listen to what they have to say, get people excited about what you’re trying to achieve… you need people to build your team, and to use your product. They wont be there for you if you’re hiding your idea away for the rainy day when you might just build it!
