Mr. Campbell doesn’t charge to help entrepreneurs like Mr. Vishria and Mr. Howes. “My fees are well known,” he said. “Zero. Nobody has to negotiate with me.” But he says he typically doesn’t invest in companies he advises. “I don’t want to have anyone ever think that I am making a decision based on a personal financial outcome,” he said. He broke that rule for RockMelt, he said, to help Mr. Vishria and Mr. Howes. “They wanted to say that Bill felt strongly enough about it that he became an investor,” he said.
