Mike Whelan
Chief Community Officer

It’s easy to overlook Non-Disclosure Agreements—you see so many of them and they seem so formulaic—but what if they’re the most significant contracts you encounter?

According to our latest Teardown guest, Ehteshamul Haque, they might be.

Watch as Shamul gets into both the nitty-gritty and the philosophical aspects of an NDA, including:

  • How power relationships impact mutuality,
  • The trouble with authorized representatives,
  • The reality of working with contractors, and
  • An NDA’s role in laying the foundation for a deal.
