loop white

This one-hour session is provided by Simon Portman of Marks & Clerk and Matthew Clark of La Playa who will be sharing their thoughts on many issues that a young (and more mature) company should address, perhaps especially if they’re trying to attract investment.  Financiers (banks, investors) will often give more credence to companies with excellent house-keeping records and a good idea, rather than an excellent idea but poor company records.

This session will cover:

  • Getting the right team: Team dynamics and reasons for team failure
  • Contract negotiation and contract management
  • Good housekeeping  and day to day issues
  • Identifying the market / actually having a market
  • Watching out for the competition
  • Hostile IP and IP infringement
  • Data privacy and cyber security
  • Implications of hitting the US market
  • Managing these risks with insurance cover
  • Different types of insurance policy

Even if not all these points are of direct relevance to your company, there will probably be several that are. This is an excellent chance to hear snapshots about each as well as being able to ask some questions of your own.
