Professor Glashausser said "The president would simply announce that Congress had created a 'Catch-22' situation requiring him to both borrow and not borrow the money." The President would take the position that the appropriation bills amount to an implicit repeal of the debt ceiling because newer law trumps older law.

This Article bridges a gap in existing literature by evaluating, from an empirical perspective, the impact of conflict among the lower courts on the Supreme Court’s decision to grant or deny a petition for a writ of certiorari. The case involved same-sex partners who had entered into an agreement to coparent children who were conceived by artificial insemination and born to one of the partners. The Kansas Supreme Court issued its opinion in this case on Friday, February 22, 2013, including mention of the Center's brief. The decision upheld the right of a same-sex nonbiological partner to continue parenting the two children born to the relationship.
The case was returned to the district court to hear evidence pertaining to the best interests of the children and reconsider matters of visitation time.

As Professor Glashausser explains, however, the text, context, and drafting history of the Extension Clause reveal the fallacy of those conventional justifications.
As the many Native American nations gamer economic strength and come into increasing contact with state and local forums, so do the chances that those forums will come face to face with questions of tribal law. It may be possible for tribal courts to gain some of the advantages and ameliorate some of the dangers by entering into a variety of cooperative arrangements with state courts. The purpose of this article is to bring together the various options for tribal and state court cooperation for the analysis of tribal law questions. Paul defined cybersecurity and scalability as two primary technology considerations for new managers. Paul continued to place emphasis on customized IT, stating that when it comes to outsourcing, it is imperative that a firm carries out proper due diligence in choosing a provider to meet the firm’s unique needs. In addressing the SEC’s increasing cyber expectations, Paul noted the importance of having a Written Information Security Plan (WISP) in place. In addition to WISP development and implementing additional policies (Access Control, Personal Information Security, Incident Response, etc.), and, of course, employing layers of security across infrastructure, employee awareness and training is the last critical piece of the puzzle. Paul concluded by describing the five most common mistakes new launches make during the start-up phase, and how to avoid them. You haven’t fully considered the multiple roles technology plays in your current work environment.
This uncertainty calls for careful consideration of what type of space is best suited for your firm.
Given the variety of different spaces available, the timeline for new firms to be up and running can vary considerably. Segal noted that despite increased regulatory exposure, the general insurance market for hedge funds has reacted quite favorably. If you’re targeting institutional investors, Segal recommends looking at certain coverages right away. Specifically, on the cyber front, Palagonia outlined the differences between first party and third party standard coverage. In commenting on the SEC, our guests also touched upon regulations involving vendor relationships and third party risk.
Both speakers agreed that there are many variables impacting the cost of a cyber insurance policy: among them the cost of the business, the industries served, revenues, number of employees, and retention. Our guests concluded by emphasizing once more how scary the escalation in cybercrime has become. Exempt Reporting Advisors (ERA) – An exempt reporting advisor is any advisor that takes advantage of the venture capital fund advisor exemption or the private fund advisor exemption. Make sure marketing and advertising material are in compliance with the anti-fraud provisions of the Advisers Act preventing advisors from engaging in manipulative activity. From D Filings – Form D is a filing required by private investment funds engaged in a regulation D offering under the Securities Act of 1933. Cybersecurity – This has become one of the biggest focuses of the SEC since April of 2015.
For example, adopting an incidence response plan will help to mitigate the aftermath of a breach.
Insider Trading – Insider trading refers to when a person uses nonpublic information to make a trade.
Virtual family offices first gained modest popularity in the 1990’s, particularly in London, Zurich, and New York, as wealthy families heard about the benefits of having their own single family office and desired the direct control that can be designed into such a structure.
One might wonder why a family would set up a virtual family office rather than hiring a multi-family office or establishing a full-fledged single family office.
In my experience, this is not common practice but it can be a tremendous benefit for families that use this strategy.
Cost: In theory, your gross costs of running a single family office are reduced if you select highly-experienced outsourced partners.
As many of you likely know, virtual family offices are the exception, not the rule, when it comes to family office structures.
Service Provider Selection Risk: Since most of operations and the investment team are outsourced, your ability to select the right service providers at the right price is critical.
In addition to having a compass, having the right experienced and well-connected advisory board constructed helps ensure that you can review the most well-qualified service providers instead of the ones who live in your city, or are family friends, etc. Speed: Since most of your team is outsourced while operating a virtual family office, you may be disappointed in having to wait a half day or more for a reply from a provider when a critical event such a sale of an asset, end of a tax period, public offering, natural disaster, or death in the family has occurred. Confidentiality: Naturally, when everything you invest in is reviewed or managed by outside partners, there is a higher chance of others seeing your investment portfolio and benefiting from that knowledge. As I noted in the beginning of this piece, the virtual family office concept is still a relatively new one.
He went on to note that the operational due diligence (ODD) industry has grown dramatically post-Madoff. Given the importance of outsourcing from an investor perspective, service provider selection must be carried out carefully. Knowledge and Experience in Investment Strategy – Can they do bank debt, trade claims, etc.? Breadth of Services – Can they provide audit and tax services under one umbrella or compliance and technology services? Fund structure: Is it a domestic LP or full blown master feeder structure with onshore offshore feeders and an offshore master? Size of organization: This will determine whether an organization launches in a hedge fund hotel or rents their own office space. To hear more from Frank Napolitani about startup budgets, ODD preparation and best practices, listen to the full replay below. Benefits: Benefits will be one of the most important factors your employees will consider when deciding to work for you.
To hear more of what Maya shared during her webinar, including information on creating employee handbooks, and how the Affordable Care Act is affecting insurance coverage, listen to the full webinar replay below. Many firms create a 10-20-page written information security plan that formalizes the definitions and policies that govern the creation, access, and deletion of confidential information and computing services.
Regulatory Risks – Following the right security practices will enable you to achieve clean audits from industry and government regulators.
Personal Email – Even if your employee is following all of your processes and practices with work-related email, you could still be vulnerable if her private, personal email is breached or corrupted. By developing an internal culture of security, the organization does far more than deploy and configure bits and bytes.
The cybersecurity landscape is constantly changing and today the cyber threat actors range from organized crime to state sponsors. When it comes to advanced persistent threats, the cyber criminals often use targeted social engineering tactics including spear phishing. Real-time intrusion detection and prevention systems that include 24x7 monitoring by security experts are a key defense in finding and stopping network intruders. Show investors that you have a 3+ year budget for working capital without any performance fees. Make sure to properly allocate expense and investment opportunities if you decide to launch a single investor fund or separately managed accounts. When it comes to seed arrangements, pick the right partner and put parameters around potential issues that could arise. Become familiar with the changing expectations on the cybersecurity front, from both investors and regulators. The Cybersecurity Interpretive Notice applies to all membership categories--futures commission merchants, swap dealers, major swap participants, introducing brokers, forex dealer members, commodity pool operators and commodity trading advisors.
But whatever approach is taken, the Cybersecurity Interpretive Notice requires Members to adopt and enforce an information systems security program (ISSP) appropriate to its circumstances. Description of ongoing education and training related to information systems security for employees. NFA recognizes that some Members may face a significant challenge implementing ISSPs by the March 1, 2016 effective date, and any programs that are adopted will be refined over time. Eze Castle Integration’s Cybersecurity Practice Team is available to create Written Information System Security Programs for firms. Investment firms often place too much emphasis on managing portfolios and not enough on managing the business as a whole. The decisions you make from the outset will define how your firm is regarded within the industry, by both investors and competitors.
Since the 2008 economic collapse and scandals caused by the likes of Madoff, transparency has become a key requirement for investors. By investing upfront in operational and technology systems that can support your business and propel operations, you provide your firm with marketing tools that will far surpass the capabilities of a presentation or pitch book.
These critical considerations are ideal for new managers to address as they enter the startup phase. Operating capital may be limited in the first few years after your launch, so careful budgeting and long range planning will serve your firm well. Governmental oversight of the financial industry has evolved dramatically in the last decade. Apart from registration, you should also determine if there are any legislative implications for your new firm. Since 2014, cybersecurity preparedness is also a critical area of focus for regulatory bodies.
Cloud services offer more flexibility than traditional infrastructure models and, beyond cost-savings, can reap rewards for new launches.
Of course, one of the greatest benefits to using an outsourced cloud service is professional management and monitoring.
Beyond infrastructure safeguards, it is critical that firms implement policies and procedures to protect firm and client assets.
One of the first decisions you’ll need to make as a new investment manager is how to set up your hedge fund. Based on these structural decisions, you’ll need to determine your tax implications as well as regulatory requirements.
Once upon a time, hedge fund marketing was generally frowned upon, and in some cases, illegal. During the initial marketing phase when a new launch is looking to secure startup capital, it’s important that firms understand their key selling points. Every successful hedge fund needs smart partners on their side, therefore deciding what service provider your firm is going to engage with is one of the most critical decisions your new startup will make. Positively, using best-in-class vendors will say a lot to investors about the value you place on your firm. While the list of considerations is surely long for new hedge fund managers, we've whittled it down to 10 Keys to Launching a Hedge Fund Successfully - a guide for new startups to use when setting off on their new journey. The Securities and Exchange Commission took major strides to regulate investment firm cybersecurity practices in 2015, with the release of multiple guidance updates (Click for the September 2015 update). To be fair, I don’t think there have been any public stories on Linkedin actually enforcing this policy on long-time active users. Founded by former Facebook employees, Quora is making the same mistake Facebook started with, the only difference being Quora has never tried correcting it standing firmly by their questionable decision. It is still hilarious to find such an adamant policy enforcers on the Internet, and it makes me wonder how Quora managed to put a bunch of lunatics to frame a policy on the Internet that forces users to reveal their identities. In an obvious effort to profile the web, Google started Google Plus with a very strict real name policy which ended up in lots of controversies. The policy didn’t work for Google Plus well, especially when they started aggressively integrating it into Youtube (where few people use real names).
On July 15, 2014 it was announced that there were absolutely no restrictions as to what name you should use when registering an account at Google Plus. The post Real Name Policies on Facebook, LinkedIn, Quora and Google Plus: Clarified appeared first on Internet Marketing Ninjas Blog. We’ve also got a fun rant about keywords from SEO Chat and some privacy-focused topics from Cre8asiteforums!

Sitelink extensions are one of the most commonly used ad extensions available in Google AdWords.
These additional links, which are typically displayed when enabled for ads holding the first or second ad position in Google’s search engine results page (SERP), provide a large handful of benefits for advertisers using them.
Typically located under your standard PPC headline and description lines, the example below highlights four sitelinks being used by this particular advertiser. Additionally, advertisers can add description lines to their sitelinks in an effort to further develop context. Implementing sitelinks into your Google AdWords campaigns can provide a ton of additional value for advertisers. Local PPC is a topic seldom discussed in the digital marketing sphere, and that’s a problem.
For many of these businesses investing in paid search ads, a typical B2C or B2B strategy just won’t do. If you have a location in a large city, or if you have multiple locations which are in close proximity with one another, you may find that city location targeting isn’t practical. The single most important element to winning with local PPC is the utilization of radius targets.
The signals AdWords uses when determining if someone is within a custom radius target often rely on physical indicators such as WiFi hot spots and GPS.
Radius targets are important, but they’re not the only factors which will make or break a local PPC strategy. Use bid modifiers on schedules and devices – Chances are your conversion metrics, such as conversion rate and average cost per conversion, will vary depending on the time of day, day of week, and what type of device a user is on. Create a campaign template – For businesses with multiple locations, create a campaign template (or set of templates) so it can be used on a one-store-per-campaign basis.
There needs to be some action on your website a user can take which indicates they’re likely to actually visit your physical location. How else will you know the money you’re investing in PPC is actually working to drive people physically to your place of business? We have a couple of current, large-scale examples at Portent where we’ve proven out this strategy (on top of many small business accounts).
In both cases, conversions went up, the average cost per conversion decreased, and conversion rates increased, all by noticeable margins. When most people think about online marketing, they think about the straightforward side--the one that makes them money directly.
When social media platforms just started springing up, I remember many experts assuming social media would kill email marketing. Maintaining a loyal, active and steadily growing list is one of the strongest assets you can build: This is what can secure your business against various rankings fluctuations and emerging competitors. These months I am experimenting with my blog calls-to-actions (primarily for the sake of self-education but also to be able to share my results with my community and help others grow).


This article is my first step in the long-lasting experiment: Making the most of calls-to-actions.
Creating a sense of urgency gets users to take action immediately instead of holding off on the purchase.
I suspect this is a later trend: Web users are getting tired of commercial CTAs pressing you to sign up to something on each page they visit. For longer CTAs, sentence case can make your button text feel like a dialogue, thus more friendly.
The theory is they have said yes once, before you ask for their address so they are more bought-in, and ready to give it. If you want to learn more about content and content marketing, check out Joe Pulizzi’s book, Content Inc. Remarketing campaigns through Google AdWords offer advertisers an additional tactic to drive potentially high value visitors back to their website in an effort to grow overall conversion figures. Remarketing campaigns allow businesses to stay connected with their target audience after they leave their website by showing ads to them on other websites across the web.
While remarketing can be a powerful channel for digital marketers, setting up your first campaign can be a challenge.
There are three core components of setup required to create and activate a remarketing campaign for your Google AdWords account. If this is your first time remarketing, you will need to add a remarketing tag to your website. Next, enter a membership duration for the list, which will determine how long the visitor’s cookie will stay on your list.
Once your list is created and the remarketing tag is implemented on your site, an audience list size will begin to populate.
Once your remarketing list has been created, it’s time to turn your attention to creating the Remarketing campaign in AdWords.

Dean Romig indicated that instructors at Washburn Law explain to first-year students how Facebook entries posted years ago could come back to haunt them in Internet searches done by future employers or clients. In the future, drones flying overhead on routine traffic patrols may pick up something in a person's backyard that looks illegal; would this information be admissible in court?
The birth mother sought and received assistance from the State of Kansas when the non-birth mother became unable to work because of an illness.

Just as other constitutional provisions guarantee the jurisprudential independence of federal judges so that they can do their jobs without fear of reprisal, the Extension Clause prevents Congress from taking certain cases away from the Supreme Court and thus secures the Court’s jurisdictional independence.
The challenges posed by an AngloAmerican court answering questions of tribal law present both danger and opportunity. In an arrangement of true parity, these options may also provide avenues for tribal courts to obtain assistance in answering important questions of state law in tribal court cases. Professor Kowalski further concludes that each option has costs and benefits, and that individual tribal nations must each undertake their own cost benefit analyses to determine which action - or none at all - is the most likely to benefit tribal sovereignty and institutions based on their goals, history, relationships with state and local entities, and even relationships between individual leaders in the state and tribal justice systems. Enacting and employing policies to mitigate security risk is critical, but documenting those policies is equally as important -- not only to meet the demands of the SEC, but to demonstrate to clients and investors that your firm takes cybersecurity preparedness seriously. Policies can be documented, Paul explained, but if employees are not trained to identify and mitigate cyber risks, the policies will be ineffective in protecting a firm.
In reality, a successful approach means negotiating, purchasing and deploying multiple systems from multiple service providers. Before you commit to any tech solutions, envision how your fund will look in the long term. Consider the work you’re doing as an employee, and consider which systems supported that work. Acknowledge that you will require IT systems to build servers, manage networks, and handle day-to-day needs. Temporary office suites, for example, provide the greatest flexibility for firms still determining their budgets, headcounts, etc.
Still, there are factors that may influence even the fast track timeline, such as, bringing in an attorney to negotiate the lease and allowing a landlord 30 days to approve or disapprove of a prospective tenant.

For a first-time buyer with good controls and no losses, Palagonia estimates a $10,000 premium minimum cost for a $1mm limit.
Palagonia cited a PwC report that states a decline of financial losses in the financial services industry of 12%, yet a 183% increase in theft of personal data and intellectually property. Throughout the webinar, Shelly reminded attendees about the importance of undertaking compliance measures right at the start of a launch, not only for regulatory purposes, but to demonstrate to prospective investors commitment to compliance. The private funded advisor exemption is available to investment advisors whose clients are solely comprised of private funds who have less than $150 AUM and are not required to be registered as an advisor in the state where their principal office is located. This technically only applies to registered advisors, but the SEC has championed the importance of organized record keeping.
Regulation D is the safe harbor exemption most private funds rely on to offer and sell interest.
They have proposed numerous measures that advisors should address in regards to cybersecurity, such as conducting periodic assessments of location and sensitivity of information and the vulnerability of the systems.
Shelly conveys that while the SEC does not have any official regulations in regards to cybersecurity, they are using other regulations, such as Regulation S-P (a privacy regulation) to go after advisers who are alleged to have failed to effectively safeguard personal information of their clients or investors. Insiders of an issuer, which include officers, directors, and other special classes of persons, are never allowed to trade on non-public material. A virtual family office and single family office are essentially one in the same, but the former model is most typically used by families with just $20M-$200M in assets under management, where a customized model is needed but not all of the overhead and support of a fully-fledged single family office.
As the family office industry has expanded over the past 20 years, this term has become more common and will likely gain traction in the future as families continue to seek out customized, affordable family office solutions.
They may see you acquiring companies in a certain industry, or have access to potentially damaging facts about your financial situation or solvency. While a manager’s pedigree, investment process, and performance used to take precedence, it is now front, middle, and back office operations plus legal compliance that are most important. Because they collaborate with many ODD teams, research teams will immediately have a feel for what is right and what is wrong with a manager from a front, middle, and back office perspective.
The differentiating factor, he explains, is AUM, and in turn the number of employees and the portion of labor that is outsourced versus internalized.
These firms will rely heavily on their prime broker and administrator for real-time reports, EMS and OMS for trade execution, and in some cases IT.
Beyond investment priorities and strategy decisions, new managers are also grappling with securing office space, ordering technology, engaging with service providers, and much more. Will you outsource certain functions and leverage a Professional Employer Organization (PEO)? For example, can the provider handle the unique payroll items that hedge funds often implement such as deferred compensation and different bonus schemes?
That can be everything from a definition of personally identifiable information (PII), a description of user access privileges and roles, or policies regarding USB thumb-drives.
It commits to defining and following thoughtful, far-ranging policies to eliminate the needless internal vulnerabilities that often go unrecognized. APT intrusions are often focused on high-value information and sectors such as the financial industry. In a spear phishing incident, criminals target specific companies or individuals and conduct background research to compile employee names, titles and contact information. Not only must emerging managers evaluate traditional deployment strategies, but consider current factors influencing the financial landscape.
There was quite a bit of content discussed during the 1-hour event, so we’ve pulled out some key takeaways.
Target those who have a history of being receptive to founder share class and who may offer lower management and performance fees. Recognize where the private cloud has an edge: high-touch, industry-specific service and support, scalability and application integration, and security and compliance. Value is derived from knowledge of the application, knowledge of business, and having a dedicated support team. The NFA's Interpretive Notice to NFA Compliance Rules 2-9, 2-36 and 2-49 entitled Information Systems Security Programs requires Member firms to adopt and enforce written policies and procedures to secure customer data and access to their electronic systems. Executive-level participation and annual review of the information security program is expected. NFA expects to devote appropriate resources, such as providing additional guidance, to assist Members as they develop and implement their ISSPs. By taking into account all aspects of your firm and relying on trusted service providers to support operations, you prove to the greater investment industry that you should be taken seriously and can operate successfully in a challenging environment.
Nothing less than full disclosure is expected of firms from the newest launches to the most established investment firms. And while that goal is certainly reachable, the process does not stop on your go-live date. These decisions can put your new firm on equal footing with established firms and demonstrate to investors that you are built to succeed. Our advice centers on everything from marketing and operations to IT budgeting and service provider selection.
Don't forget to visit Hedge IT on Thursday as we reveal the last of our key considerations for starting a hedge fund. Hedge funds, private equity firms and registered investment advisers now operate in a world where they are beholden to regulatory bodies with growing expectations and requirements. The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010, which redefined the registration requirements for hedge funds, also set forth new reporting requirements and standards for safeguards. With the prevalence of cyber threats and attacks, the SEC’s Office of Compliance and Examinations (OCIE) has incorporated cybersecurity into its examination targets. Firms can add users nearly instantly – a welcome benefit for startups looking to ramp up quickly. You can do this by conducting employee awareness training to keep all users informed and educated about the cyber environment and the threats that may arise. Be sure to come back to Hedge IT next week as we reveal more of our key considerations for starting a hedge fund.
Your organizational structure will typically reveal itself as a limited partnership (LP) or limited liability company (LLC). In the United States, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), under the Dodd-Frank Act, requires asset managers managing more than $150 million in AUM to register and hence meet a host of reporting requirements. It wasn’t until the JOBS Act was enacted in 2013 that hedge funds finally had the opportunity to shed their fears of noncompliance and publicly market and advertise their funds.
As a new firm, you won’t be able to manage all aspects of your operations internally. If you outgrow your vendor quickly, it can be a significant operational disruption to transition to a new one. And be sure to come back to Hedge IT later this week when we'll be sharing an excerpt from our brand new whitepaper on the same topic!

They provide advertisers the ability to promote additional links to their website within a signular PPC ad. Increase click-through rates: Similar to other ad extensions, sitelinks enable PPC ads to take up more real estate on the SERP. Increase conversion rates: By providing users with a handful of pertinent links and landing pages to fulfill their needs, users have the opportunity to hit a conversion point faster. No change in cost per click: Regardless of having sitelinks display with your ad or not, the average cost you pay per click does not change.
Link text and landing page content should directly relate to the standard ad the sitelink is paired with. Use a unique sitelink for each landing page or URL your using– no two sitelinks can link to the same page. When executed properly, these extensions can provide a ton of extra value on top of your standard PPC ad.
There are many businesses which depend on potential customers among the local population to physically enter a specific location and spend money; restaurants and service shops are two of the most prominent examples. Budgets might be extremely tight and every penny needs to count, especially for small businesses.
In this post, we’re going to cover the key elements to a successful local PPC strategy, provide a few tips on how to execute it, and show you what to expect after you execute these changes. Furthermore, using more specific targets, like zip codes, may be more of a pain than they’re worth. When it comes to utilizing a budget most efficiently, it’s safest to switch that setting over to target only users physically in your targeted location(s). Use bid modifiers accordingly to bid down (or stop showing ads entirely) for poor conversion metrics and bid up for good conversion metrics.
This way, you can keep your account organized, your campaigns consistent, and be able to devote specific amounts of budget toward any given location. As a result, PPC influenced more people to physically go to these places and grow these businesses. You just need to make sure you’re utilizing the key elements which make it a success.

The bank believes hackers executed a hack that allowed $81 million to be taken from the bank’s foreign exchange account at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. And the way that starts to happen is through systemic and comprehensive training practices. Prepare an institutional set of documents up front if you are looking to attract institutional money versus high net money. They include risk assessment, governance, training, access control, vendor management, and information sharing. Additionally, firms must provide employees training during the onboarding processes as well as periodically during employment.

From your legal paperwork to security practices and technology safeguards, the importance of documentation cannot be understated in today’s environment. For example, system safeguards such as data protection, disaster recovery measures and email archiving are requirements under Dodd-Frank. Having released two extensive questionnaires and several risk alerts focused on security, the SEC has made it clear to investment firms that they will be investigating the practices employed at firms and increasing expectations for the future.
Startups have a variety of options when it comes to settling on their technology infrastructure. Users can gain access to email, file services and applications from virtually anywhere, and built-in disaster recovery provides confidence that everything is protected from the inside out. Users should understand how security threats may present themselves (phishing schemes, social engineering, etc.) as well as how they can become cybersecurity assets to your firm.

During this week’s session of our Hedge Fund Launch Webinar Series, Nicole Segal and Gamelah Palagonia of Willis Towers Watson spoke with us about how to leverage cyber and privacy liability insurance, as well as offered insight in to the evolving nature of cybercrime.

Consider how your firm’s structure (LLC or LP) will affect you from a tax perspective.
Realistically, as a new launch, you’ll probably outsource at least some HR functions. Many employees are financially savvy and want to select their own funds for retirement assets. It appears that the initial point of entry for the hackers was a spear-phishing email, potentially sent weeks before the fraud took place, which allowed the criminals time to remotely monitor and probe the bank’s networks without detection. Obtaining such details and observing communications provides criminals with the tools to mirror email addresses, website URLs and dialect. Tools such as risk management or document management systems can give extra peace of mind to demanding investors with high expectations. Regardless of the assets your firm is launching with, you will be expected to have sophisticated and comprehensive policies and procedures in place from day one to combat cyber threats. With the birth of cloud technology, firms can save on upfront capital expenditures and host their infrastructure in the cloud – providing flexibility within those startup budgets. A reputable cloud services provider not only provides world-class infrastructure and resiliency; it also assumes responsibility for the management and daily maintenance of your cloud environment.
Investors also have high expectations, and before they will even consider allocating money to your firm, they want to understand what protections you’ve put in place to protect their assets.
Many of these decisions will be impacted by the assets you plan to launch with or if you’re using or planning to solicit seed or acceleration capital.
Regardless of how, firms should build comprehensive marketing plans that will support their business beyond the launch phase.

Friedland makes the distinction between quality and opulence, noting that many firms avoid spaces that project spending investors’ money in a frivolous way.
