VentureApp Community Guidelines to Strengthen the Innovation Economy

VentureApp Community Guidelines to Strengthen the Innovation Economy

  1. Be Respectful – The VentureApp community is a collection of smart, successful professionals and should be treated as such. Any and all interactions that are deemed as disrespectful or out of line will be flagged and removed. VentureApp reserves the right to suspend any account based on questionable activity.
  2. Be Valuable – Access to the VentureApp community and public and private networks is a privilege for professionals and should be treated as such. We love when users talk about trends in the industry, events, current news, or any other discussion-worthy content with the community. Any and all activities within the community that are deemed as spam or solicitations will be flagged and removed. VentureApp reserves the right to suspend any account based on questionable activity.
  3. No Fake Identities – Use your real name, real professional details, and real contact information when signing up and interacting with the community.
  4. Keep Interactions Mutually Beneficial – If you’re reaching out directly to a new contact in a network, treat the interaction as you would meeting a new person at an event or on the street. Share intros, knowledge, experiences, etc., to see how you can learn and benefit from one another.
  5. Do Not Ask for Intros – You wouldn’t ask someone at an event for an intro to an investor, entrepreneur, etc., right off the bat. Treat our community the same way. Provide value, strengthen your relationship, and build from there.
  6. Do Not Ask for a Meeting – Similarly, no one has time for meetings with people they don’t know. Provide value, strengthen your relationship, and build from there.
  7. Do Not Ask for Money – You should get the hint by now. Investors are not on VentureApp to hand out money. They’re here to provide insight and conversation, hoping to strengthen the community just like the rest of us. Provide value, strengthen your relationship, and build from there.
  8. The Eighth and Final Rule: If this is your first day on the network, you have to send a message.
