"The currency and primary medium of exchange for of a bespoke collaboration catalyst, such as CRED, is our creative ideas. It is how we get partners to the table. Our success depends on finding a balance between protecting our ideas and embracing the transparency of a collaborator. Shari, who functions as our General Counsel on-demand, does an amazing job of helping us to distill what is truly important and relevant to protect with each opportunity we pursue or concept we create. She takes particular care and creativity in finding an apt solution for even the wildest of our aspirations. She has helped us to move a lot quicker in an environment where windows of opportunity sometimes closes quickly: giving us the luxury (and advantage) of pushing the envelope on our creativity."
