Establishing and Controlling Ethical Behavior

Gary Morgenthaler and David Morgenthaler, Morgenthaler Ventures

Morgenthaler Ventures maintains its standard of ethical behavior by explicitly conveying to the managers that unethical behavior will not be tolerated. Life is too short to engage in corrupt dealing and honesty pays off in the end anyway. If ever put in a situation where you are pressed to do something immoral, resist and do all you can to stop it. If you can't stop it, find another job.
