At Blackford Ventures, we take a Hippocratic approach to information we receive in the course of our business. Indeed, the excellence of our reputation turns on what we call our “pledge of confidentiality.”
The great Greek physician Hippocrates is credited with creating the first professional oath nearly 2,500 years ago and it included this language acknowledging that a good doctor maintains the confidences of his patients.
Whatever, in the course of my practice, I may see or hear (even when not invited), whatever I may happen to obtain knowledge of, if it be not proper to repeat it, I will keep sacred and secret within my own breast.
When you speak with any member of the Blackford Ventures staff, no part of that conversation will ever “hit the street.”
You have our oath.
