Risk Mitigation

This masterclass will teach participants how to recognise and mitigate risks of new ventures and be prepared for the interaction with entrepreneurs and other stakeholders in order to reduce the investment risk.
Most entrepreneurs fail to raise investment. Why? Investors and companies have no money to invest? Investors and management boards have no skills to support them? The correct answer is – too much risk! The real dilemma lies on the border of potential and reality. Potentially, all the projects are great, but in reality there
are RISKS warning about poor execution of the idea. What entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs tend to forget is that even the best idea in the world is worth zero, when there is zero execution. Business angels tend to analyse the opportunities in a static way (yes or no to the investment). Based on the real life examples, this
short workshop will teach the participants to understand, identify, avoid or mitigate the main risks in any project, which will significantly reduce the investment risk. A dynamic risk mitigation approach towards the entrepreneurs will create benefits for the investors and entrepreneurs.
The expert mentor is Paulo Andrez - President of Green Swan.
