I have an invention that I want to shop around to potential incubators, investors and companies. How do I prevent my idea from being stolen? I'm worried that asking people to sign nondisclosure agreements (NDAs) is bad form.
My small business relies on clients from all around the country. To save money, I have our product and planning meetings via conference call. Is that bad form? Should I be flying to meet them in person — and if so, how often?
