Risk considerations for fast-growing tech companies
Protect your business from increasing risk exposure as you continue to grow.
As your business grows and evolves, so too will your risk and insurance considerations. Marsh has the industry expertise to partner with you on this journey to help protect your business and achieve more of what is possible.
From start-up to scale we have risk solutions tailored to the needs of the tech industry.
In this interactive session we will cover issues that can arise across businesses of all sizes in the tech industry and how to mitigate those risks. Topics for discussion will include:
- Use of Open Source Software
Potential use of open source software to support internal business functions or embedding in your products can bring an element of both operational and liability risk.
- Capital Raising
As one of the most prevalent challenges for start-ups, securing investment and capital raising can increase the risk for directors to manage operations and finances accordingly.
- Data Protection and Privacy
Data and privacy breaches have become all too commonplace for companies, especially those publicly listed. Critical information may be used against your organisation for extortion and can also lead to reputational harm if made public.
- Protection of IP
Loss of IP, especially at the start-up stage, could be highly detrimental to future growth and market penetration.
- ESG failures
Embedding an ESG strategy is increasingly a source of competitive advantage to the organisations that do it well, and a source of disadvantage for those that are not prioritising this emerging area of operational importance.
- Staff Retention
In a competitive labour market, retaining key talent in the tech sector remains a pertinent issue, especially for companies that are preparing for sale or IPO and require retention of core personnel.
Join us for an engaging session where you will get the opportunity for one-on-one time with risk experts from across the Marsh business, including Cyber, Liability and ESG specialists.
The event will begin with a short presentation, followed by a speed-networking format, with drinks, nibbles and networking to close.
In accordance with the Covid Protection Framework we require everyone attending our in-person events to be fully vaccinated.
