Other People’s Money – OPM

The slang Other People’s Money or OPM refers to the use of funding from any of a wide variety of sources, other than your own personal funds.

The bad pun but good advice is “don’t get hooked on OPM.” Far too many startups get hooked on venture capital, for example, rather than focusing on customers and revenue. Customers’ OPM is probably the only good OPM to get hooked on.
