In our first TI:GER class, after reviewing the program and goals for the semester, we learned about non-disclosure agreements. A guest speaker, Phillip A. Cooper from Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough LLP, gave a presentation about both the purpose and clauses of these agreements. Although I have signed several NDA’s in the past as an employee, it was very helpful to have them described in more detail. As the TI:GER teams develop their ideas into business plans, we will have the option to create non-disclosure agreements for those that assist or consult with us. Fully understanding these complex agreements will allow us to know when to use them, when to sign them in the course of our projects, and what exactly the implications of the agreements are.
