HARRY’S COMMENTS: As usual, I have an armload of inside information on this client, but I’m limited in what I can share in this post. What I can tell you is that when I understood what the company does, I thought “Holy cow, these guys are going to make a mint. I wonder if I can convert my portion of the search fee to equity?” In the hundreds of kickoff calls I have done with IR-1000 firms, my spider senses have tingled like that maybe a dozen times.
