Suppose the CEO of my competitor contacts me, interested in acquiring my app (privately owned). What steps would I take to avoid giving away proprietary information before the sale closes, if ever?
Meet all your competitors. You never know where it will go. It may help you head off a stupid conflict later. You might combine the companies. Who knows.
Keep the super confidential stuff secret. But anything anyone could find with a Google search, just share it.
There’s not as much to hide as you think, and often something to learn.
