Something for the business gurus out there.
A couple of the senior people at my current employer are leaving to start their own business. They have asked me if I want to join them (as an employee rather than business partner). They will be starting from nothing and there will be some overlap with our existing business (i.e. almost certainly competing directly). They want to take me on to develop one area of the business in which I have a significant amount of experience.
I have a meeting with them this week to discuss things and whilst I know the business area well I need to be armed with sensible questions to ask a fledgling business to be sure they have thought everything out and guage the probability of success. Anybody any sensible suggestions?
