We have a dollar each. If I give you mine you have two and I have none. But we have an idea each too. If you share your idea and I share mine both of us will have two ideas.
We are as transparent as possible and want to share our success story with everybody. This is why we make all kinds of documents open to the public. Some explain why and how we are organized some are very specific. Feel free to have a look at them and use them to your advantage!
