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.

Urgency Determines Whether or Not Important Projects Are Completed Correctly
Chris Burch has developed several reputable businesses from the ground up, and has been instrumental in the development of several others, making the business mogul an expert in the area of business establishment. Using his impressive background in business building, Burch explained to venture capitalists why a sense of urgency is so vital the completion of stated goals and company projects. 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.

Financial Advisor Kyle Bass Thinks China Will Be Forced To Bail Out Their Banks Soon


The Chinese are a proud people. Most of the information that comes out of China is structured so the Chinese don’t lose face with the rest of the world. The Chinese economy was once the largest in the world, and the Chinese leaders want to hold that position again. But the Chinese manufacturing based economy started to stall a few years ago, and the government had to scramble to keep their Growth Domestic Product percent up to the new normal which was between six and ten percent. The Chinese government has been dipping into their massive cash reserves for more than 18 months, and investors like Kyle Bass say that’s a sign that there is something rotten in the Chinese economic figures. Kyle Bass is sure that China is going to hit an economic wall similar to the wall the U.S. hit in 2008, and he is betting millions of dollars that will trigger a massive devaluation of their currency.



Kyle Bass isn’t the only hedge fund investor that has millions riding on a Chinese economic meltdown, according to UsfulStooges. Several big hedge funds have placed the same bet, and they are just waiting for the hammer to fall on the Chinese banks. Kyle Bass thinks the Chinese banks have a huge amount of bad debt on their books, and the government will be forced to erase the debt using capital reserves. The Chinese are formidable foes, so Bass has a fight on his hands, but Bass is used to fighting.



But there have been other questionable bets that have left a very bad taste in the mouths of investors. When he sided with GM over the faulty steering mechanism situation, he lost credibility. When he sided with former Argentina President Cristina de Kirchner, he lost more credibility when she defaulted on her debt bonds. Chris Kyle’s widow claims the Bass hedge fund, Hayman Capital, is unethical, and some of the drug companies agree with her because Hayman Capital is betting against their stock using what some of them call, “inside information.”
