A Message from our Co-Founder, Gerard Escaler
To our valued clients, partners and team members,
The prolonged quarantines and travel restrictions arising from COVID-19 have decimated businesses across a number of industries and around the world. Few have felt its impact more keenly than the start-up sector. While many are adapting and pivoting their business models, a number of companies are unable to make this transition due to high fixed costs, changing governmental restrictions or material risks related to possible client and employee infection from reopening.
To better support our clients and partners, we are providing a number of pro bono or low-cost options to help you navigate these troubled times.
1. SEEK OUT MENTORS
Connect with me on LinkedIn or Clubhouse and I will offer to connect you with an experienced start-up mentor with a track record of building or investing in start-up ventures similar to yours. You can follow me on Clubhouse at @gescaler.
2. ATTEND OUR TED CIRCLE EVENTS
We recently hosted a Lyrium-TED Circles event on "An ethical plan for ending the pandemic and restarting the economy," which drew participants from Hong Kong, Manila, and Mexico. If you'd like to receive the document, kindly send us your contact information here. We also regularly host a series of other TED Circles events virtually across a wide range of topics, guided by the themes set by TED. To learn more, feel free to contact me.
3. FOCUS ON RISK AND COMPLIANCE
Cost: Based on scope. Contact me to set up a free consultation.
In the new normal, many companies are now operating remotely either on a partial or full-time basis and their compliance programs and risk and controls processes may not yet have been updated to keep pace with evolving threats. Lyrium has formed a strategic partnership with F&C Consulting Group within Asia-Pacific. If you'd like to have an initial discussion about your compliance, risk or investigations strategy, please contact me and we will arrange an introductory call.
I look forward to connecting with you.
