It’s best to play nice with others in the startup community. While it may seem diverse and diffused, I’ve found word travels fast.
The startup world is transparent and highly viral.
So much of what happens regarding deal-flow and investing is based on reputation and trust. It takes a long time to build but can be destroyed in seconds.
While some play the rough game, it’s not the norm. Those who do are just protecting their time as requests for help are practically endless.
Always treat everyone with respect and give as much as you take.
