Sign up today!  IVCA presents: Protecting the Value of Your Investment: How to Use Communication Planning to Mitigate Franchise Risk

April 13, 2016

Are you ready if:
  • One of your portfolio company sites experiences a mass shooting?
  • A key employee is arrested at work?
  • Your firm is hacked and private information is stolen?

 Very few VC or PE firms have Communication experts on staff to deal with a firm level or portfolio company crisis so the General Counsel often leads an ad hoc team to deal with a specific crisis and how to prepare before a specific crisis emerges.
 
This IVCA event explores the steps VC and PE firms can take to anticipate and mitigate reputational risk for the firm and for portfolio companies.  The session will provide actual examples and practical perspectives from the point-of-view of VC & PE investors, a firm general counsel, and a leading Marketing & Communications firm.
