Promiscuity and Monagamy

Brad Feld and Tom Evslin, two of my favorite bloggers and people (not necessarily in that order), are having a conversation about no-shop clauses.

They are using the language of relationships to spice up the conversation which is always interesting.

I’ll leave it up to them to keep the conversation going.

But I will say this.

There are way too many VCs who waive around term sheets promiscuously and have the nerve to expect the entrepreneur to sign up to a no shop.

It’s no wonder our industry sometimes suffers from a bad rap.
