With all the talk about being proactive, yet not wanting to bind into money burns, I though of this.
So in this instance what would differentiate between a MG and a ZFG? The only real thing I can think of is how the grant is solicited. This could be a very useful avenue to be proactive in in the short term, build up a bit more of a war chest and get a feeling for what we can and cant do as a team.
it would need a separate mechanism and structure but it sounds good to me. Especially with 2 or 3 full time positions. on that note, I think in the first instance people should expect to commit more time than normal in the first 4 weeks to get this stuff up and running asap, hopefully leveraging as much of the existing ZFG process as possible.
What do other candidates think of this idea? I like it.
Can anyone else see a difference that I am missing?
