Interesting project choice - are you going to be the business development guy while the other makes the money? But congratulations and best of luck. Lots of money to be made out there
Ah, well, since we're just following what the algorithm says, emotion shouldn't play into it at all. We have very strict rules governing everything, so I'm not really making any decisions on my own judgment or emotions. So hopefully that will help us stay impartial.
I'm managing a lot of the actual modeling as well, and my partner is doing business dev too -- so at the moment at least we're splitting the burden a fair bit. Although I probably skew more on the fundraising side and he more on the analytics side.
