Q: Are there any rules or concerns about advisors investing in advisee companies?
A: No, for most matches we take you as far as the introduction and follow-up, once the connection has been made we leave it up to the two parties to decide what is appropriate. Similar to meeting someone from any online platform, we expect due-diligence to happen on both sides before either party agrees to anything. In some cases we match investors to startup companies; therefore, if there's an investment, great! If not, we un-match and try again.
