When trying to borrow money from a lender or raise capital from an investor, it's expected that you make certain documents available, including a business plan, income statement, balance sheet, cash flow statement and of course your projections. If you send these files electronically, then you run the risk of revealing more information than you would like to through metadata. Metadata is information about the document that is visible in the "properties" window and can show who created the document, when it was created, how many times its been edited and more. Metadata readers can reveal even more. Avoid revealing more than you want to by using a metadata cleaner before sending out documents.
