Risk Assessment – LOB 009

Every business deals with a certain amount of risk. How do venture capitalists really think about risk…and how they look at it from both a qualitative and quantitative perspective. Do analysts and investors feel the same about risk? How much do you tell your investor about the risk? How do people in the energy industry deal with risk? Do analysts and investors react the same way when it comes to risk? Do venture capital investors worry about your competition?

The Language of Business looks at risk assessment. Host Greg Stoller talks with Bill Contente, Partner at Gesmer Updegrove LLP; Christopher Mirabile, Co-Managing Director of LaunchPad Venture Group; Bob Goodoff, Principal of Sea View Global Advisors, LLC
