Businesses face external threats whether they operate on Main Street or on a global basis. The majority of startups fail to develop a risk assessment when preparing funding documents, yet 100% of investors and bankers require them. In this seminar, we examine the basic external threats startups must address and suggest mitigations for the most common. We also examine Black Swans, unpredictable and highly improbable events, and show how even startups are able to prepare for the worst.
