Chris Burch Lectures Venture Capitalists on Developing a Sense of Urgency

Chris Burch has recently become the topic of media discussion after his lecture to venture capitalists regarding the development of a sense of urgency was released on the Burch Creative Capital website. The successful businessman, entrepreneur, and now venture capitalist, has participated in a series of events designed to educate future professionals about the skills and values necessary to develop and operate a successful business model. During his latest discussion with a group of venture capitalists, Burch stated that the development of an urgent mentality was vital to the venture capital industry because a company’s sense of urgency determines whether or not important projects are completed with the original impact they were developed with and because a venture capitalist’s sense of urgency determines whether or not potentially successful businesses are able to move forward.

According to Chris Burch, a company’s sense of urgency can dramatically influence the company’s ability to effectively conduct product research. When company employees do not feel a sense of urgency to complete tasks associated with the development of a larger company project, the larger project usually suffers. Even when tasks are completed on time within a company that has difficulty with the concept of urgency the company rarely communicates the intended purpose of the project with its consumers.

Urgency Determines Whether or Not Potentially Successful Businesses Move Forward
Chris Burch ( also discussed the role that urgency plays in the ability of businesses to expand and reach new markets. Venture capitalists have the unique ability to affect multiple businesses at one time in both negative and positive ways. By increasing the sense of urgency within a venture capital firm, business leaders can cultivate the success of the small business ventures in which they have invested time, money, and resources. Chris Birch stated that all business leaders should create effective strategies to increase the sense of urgency in their companies.

SEC Whistleblowers Given Specialist Assistance By Labaton Sucharow

Each year the financial markets are examined for their adherence to the rules and regulations created by the U.S. Congress and administered by the Securities and Exchange Commission. Following the 2008 economic slowdown the Congress passed the Dodd-Frank Act that was in part designed to make sure the highest level of progtections and rewards ever introduced were made available to whistleblowers who would bring evidence of the activities of individuals and companies mismanaging finances in the U.S.

The Dodd-Frank Act was passed into law with one of the authors, Jordan Thomas, heading to private practice with the Labaton Sucharow law firm where he assembled the first specialist department devoted to the development of SEC whistleblower activities. Thomas has been an outspoken supporter of the program and has used his position as an SEC whistleblower attorney to explain his view that the best possible evidence for almost every case comes from whistleblowers; Thomas explained the growing levels of financial rewards given to SEC whistleblowers will only attract more financial experts to the program and protect consumers around the world from having their finances mishandled.

Jordan Thomas and his team at Labaton Sucharow have been at the front of the push for greater levels of financial rewards and better protections of the anonymity of the individual whistleblower that are already at an all time high; Thomas has worked on cases where a whistleblower has been unmasked and targeted by their employer in a bid to halt a case.

Recently, the SEC Whistleblower lawyer Jordan Thomas has worked on a number of high profile cases that include an individual receiving a record $17 million reward for the information brought to the SEC. Thomas and his team are looking to work with whistleblowers from the very first steps they take in bringing their case to the attention of the SEC; Thomas and his team at Labaton Sucharow have the skills to examine evidence and ensure a case can be brought by the SEC before the whistleblower steps forward and places their reputation on the line.
