Non-Disclosure Agreements (NDAs) Within Journeys
You can now secure Journeys by requiring that the viewer first sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA).
NDAs are a fantastic way of enforcing compliance and confidentiality for critical business development and fundraising deals — times when someone is sharing confidential or proprietary information.
Common Use Cases
When sharing confidential business information with potential investors, partners, or employees.
When working with contractors, freelancers, or consultants who may have access to sensitive company information.
When disclosing proprietary technology or trade secrets in the course of research and development, joint ventures, or licensing agreements.
When discussing potential mergers, acquisitions, or other business transactions that involve sensitive financial or strategic information.
When sharing personal or sensitive information in the course of legal proceedings or negotiations.
When not to use NDAs
Please note that Journeys are used for all manner of fundraising and sales -- we do not recommend that all Journeys be secured with NDAs.
Specifically, we strongly advise against using this feature if you're fundraising at a Seed stage or even a Series A without being advised to use an NDA from a well regarded advisor who has knowledge of your specific situation.
For example Y Combinator specifically recommends against using NDAs when fundraising.
That said, we've had over 40 Journey organisations request this feature and have had 7 figure sales deals be closed via Journeys, strategic partners be onboarded via Journeys, and late growth stage fundraising deals be closed via Journeys — all prime examples for NDAs!
How to use
NDAs can be enabled from the "Access" controls of the Share panel, when editing a Journey.
