Know your context

One risk area that we didn’t flag in our example of a risk table (because we were focused on clients), is the considerations of the different legal associations, and how they relate to legal and compliance obligations in terms of local law.

Explore your market

Exploring your market should include expanding your organisation’s network of funders and partners.
