Do you sign NDAS
No we offer our own terms in relation to confidentiality. There is no value to us in signing an NDA, it is doubtful that we will know what your project is and so we will not be able to understand what we can do to assist. NDA's can create a liability that is not acceptable when you are seeking assistance. In addition, we may be working with our client's with not dissimilar ideas and we can therefore not expose other clients to risk. Value in a project is the execution of an idea, that is what creates a viable business. If the idea itself is easy to execute so much so that it must be kept secret, then it is probably not very strong. We work on relationships founded on trust. NDA's is not very trusting before we agree involvement.
