The Importance of Transparency• The team: – Describe the management skills and experience and why they can execute the business plan.– Best practice for achieving transparency requires that you have the correct advisors i.e., Attorney’s, Accountants and Investment Bankers.– Consider forming Boards of Directors and Advisors.
