“I used to be questioning when you have any frameworks or ideas on distinguish founders / startups which have an moral north star vs those that don’t.”
Right here was my response. How may this framework be improved?
powerful query! in rising areas, there’s all the time a certain quantity of disagreement/and so on you’re going to should struggle by — simply because folks have variations of opinion or are mad at you doesn’t essentially imply you’re performing unethically. I’ve heard folks say that OpenAI ought to have gotten approval from faculty lecturers earlier than they launched Chat!!
so perhaps there’s one thing like a 3 tier system so that you can contemplate
1. Do i believe the founders share my values, are good folks, and so on
2. Do i believe the product/expertise being labored on is a web optimistic for society and can we work to determine/mitigate/scale back the unfavourable externalities which happen. How will we measure this?
3. Do i believe this firm is being inbuilt a manner the place ethics are (i) screened for in our hiring, (ii) emphasised in our studying and growth, and (iii) open for dialogue in our ongoing suggestions strategies (1:1s, firm surveys, all fingers, and so on)
that’s simply off the cuff ¯_(ツ)_/¯
