The Blacklist

2015-09-29: by Mark Montalban


This is a private Blacklist for enrolled Founders, Graduates and Mentors to access that will include individuals and companies to avoid doing business with, either directly or indirectly, around the world. If you know any individual or company to be included on the Blacklist, email with a message titled, "BLACKLIST: [Company / Individual]". Please include the full name and contact information for any individuals, and write one paragraph to describe the reason for blacklisting. If you recommend blacklisting a company, identify the specific individual or individuals at the firm to avoid. Please also attach any related correspondence or supporting information. The Institute will review each recommendation before adding them to the blacklist. Depending on the severity of the situation, a blacklisted entity will remain intact for 6 months, one year or even permanently.
