Summary

Can you imagine finding product-market fit for your startup, demonstrating traction, and raising capital only to have your startup killed by regulators? It could happen to you!

Startups always have too much that needs attention with not enough time for everything—isn't it best just to focus on executing and ignore the regulators, like Uber is doing? Risk management is one of the most important skills a founder needs, and in highly regulated industries, ignoring government actors and hoping everything works out is a foolish risk.

We'll discuss both defensive and offensive strategies to engaging the government, specifically focusing on examples drawn from the startup visa advocacy effort and immigrant founders' stories of problems at the border. Learn how government bureaucrats make decisions and how you can protect your startup from getting killed by regulations.
