For today’s startup, properly managing your company’s risk is crucial. From large capital commitments to long-term contracts to hiring and firing key personnel, each decision you make as a founder could have significant — and possibly disastrous — impacts on your firm if you do not properly manage your risk. At the same time, risk-taking is second nature to entrepreneurs, who must make gutsy moves to beat the competition and change the world in some way. It’s this unique balance of taking necessary risks and prudent risk-management that is one of the defining challenges of being a startup founder, and it is the central topic for our upcoming webinar.
