I’ve heard people typically like the buy side because they are putting their own skin in the game, but it’s also a ton of work and you have to perform a ton of due diligence to make sure you are buying the appropriate asset

In M&A, sell-side is usually a lot more work. Financing/LevFin is opposite in my experience

Assuming you mean buyside and sellside as a banker. Buyside engagements are generally easier. 1 counterparty vs 5. Though they can suck if you have a shitty client. Sellside is better as a junior from an experience standpoint

How to get founders skin in the game?

Hi all, I work in biotech and have 6yrs of professional experience in my industry. I'm starting up my own shop and I've been scouting for co founders to do the technical parts of our work while I do the business side of things.

But as we continue to set things up I worry about them flaking out and their commitment in general. How have you ensured that your co founders are committed? How did they get skin in the game?

Do people just make up a writing topic and write about it?
