Equity motivation for co-chairing a conference

Filed under: Real — liyiwei @ 3:04 pm

Once upon a time, a conversation happened between two paper co-chairs for an upcoming conference:

It is great to hear that you would be one of the papers co-chairs.
I am rather stretched with commitments over the next year including a startup and hence I would be much happier to take on this role knowing my co-chair is willing to share the load equally which I hope you are.

Forcing me to invest in your startup can be a good way to incentivize me to put in enough effort for EGSR. (Otherwise, you will have to spend more time on EGSR, which means less time on your start-up, and eventually less return of my investment.)

That is a brilliant idea 😀
I might take you up on that for the next round of funding 😉
