Also known as Peter Thiel's Kryptonite

Harold: So I see that you got a Bachelor's Degree just last year?

Equity Leaching Nests

Office spaces that require you to give up percent ownership of your company (or warrants to purchase parts of your company up to 10 years) in exchange for month to month office space.

The Ratchetry is an equity leaching nest that wants our company to sign up. Although I like the investor team that backs it, I'm pretty indifferent about the program itself.
