      A couple of additional responses to the earlier email about partnering

      Couple quick thoughts: 1) stay focused on the value proposition you
      offer and not the size of their organization. if the relationship is
      grounded in value, size doesn't matter. 2) better to have a bad contract
      with good people then a good contract with bad people ... point being,
      they can probably wear you down with legal resources but again, if you
      keep the relationship grounded in value, the legal waters are usually
      easier to navigate.

      good luck...

      The forprofit is obviously looking for some type of Return on Investment
      for partnering with you. Could you and they spell out the expectations
      you each hold for the partnership and separate out the investment
      perspective from a pro-rata share of the operational expenses?
