Today’s (11/23/2015) Wall Street Journal contains an article written by an ethics professor discussing the ethical challenges faced by the folks who launch and run startups. Complete with interviews with a panel of entrepreneurs and venture capitalists, the article details all-too-familiar challenges faced by founders and their successors, from questionable use of intellectual property to allocating ownership shares to fudging the numbers. Also a few good examples of founders who took the high road despite the pressure to do otherwise. If you’ve ever been part of a startup these will sound familiar, even if your company did the right thing. A good read, even if there’s no lesson to be learned beyond awareness.
