Based on some passive-aggressive comments I received on the social media, I wanted to clarify a few points, so it’s crystal-clear for all parties involved. I know, from prior experience, that such reactions are not uncommon; heck I had even missed it 🙂
Without further ado, here come the disclosures:
I don’t own (or claim to own) any ideas published on this blog
So if you see an idea posted here, and think that it belongs to you, that’s fine, it’s yours. I recommend you to go ahead and patent it (if you can) instead of yelling at me 🙂 I won’t; these are public-domain, in my view.
Lastly, as the clipping above states, “ideas are just a multiplier of execution,” hence they’re of negligible value.
If there’s a product relevant to the idea posted here, I’ll mention it
that is if I know it.
If I don’t, I won’t, but feel free to drop the name in the comments, and I may even include them in the main article.
If you come up with a product that builds on the idea(s) posted here, I’ll cover them too
and that’s without any expectation… So relax and shoot me an email. Depending on my availability, I’ll be happy to review your product and even hunt it on ProductHunt, if you’d like.
Not all ideas are for Average Joe, the startup founder, and I know it
I may be posting some far-fetched ideas here, and it’s cool. I don’t want this to be treated as a source for new startup ideas only. They may include:
- roll-up scenarios for the Private Equity funds,
- M&A (merger and acquisition) speculations,
- recommendations for publicly-traded companies
as well as public-policy and movie ideas even. These were all stashed in my Gmail…
Last but not least, the funds are only for a limited time and geography, and it sure is not for charity. Nor is it my personal investment vehicle. So while I may like what you’ve built, it doesn’t necessarily guarantee a check. For more details, read the Funds announcement more carefully.
Hope this clarifies some of the confusion on this blog’s raison d’être, and the availability of the Funds. Should you have any questions, please reach out.
