I do not know which one is the correct preposition to use in the following example. 'partners may not have the same buy-in in projects', seems to be more correct but 'partners may not have the same buy-in of projects'

  • Don't you buy-in to a thing? – KillingTime Sep 11 at 16:08
  • It depends on what you mean. If the purpose of the partners' buy-in(s) is for the partners to become a part of the project(s), then you use "in." If the partners' buy-in accumulates a fund that acquires the projects themselves, then you use "of." – Benjamin Harman Sep 11 at 16:13
  • It really doesn't flow well, no matter which preposition you try to shoe-horn in there. I suggest Project partners may not have the same buy-in [with/without such-and-so]. – aparente001 Sep 11 at 17:03
  • I think "buy-in for each project" sounds a bit better, but restructuring the sentence lik @aparente001 suggests is also a good option. – JRodge01 Sep 11 at 17:05
  • @JRodge01 - It completely depends on the situation. There are so many ways of avoiding preposition snafus. – aparente001 Sep 11 at 17:16
