Risk Analysis: Does the risk outweigh the opportunity?

Turn the coin over

Risk and opportunity are opposite faces of the same coin, so it’s vital to turn the coin over. Without a sound evaluation of the risks associated with a technology or venture, you could be ill-equipped to manage, mitigate or avoid risks, which could limit its value or success.

Consider the impact on value  

When assessing an opportunity’s potential value, knowing the associated risks and limitations is crucial. Consider this: without a sound view of the risks involved, how will you anticipate the problems or gaps that could limit realisation of the opportunity’s full value?

Gain two perspectives

By bringing two perspectives to risk analysis – technical and commercial – Corelli Consulting provides you with a broader, deeper insight into a venture’s risk. This insight reduces the likelihood of unwelcome surprises as the venture progresses and has a flipside; deep insight can also uncover unexpected opportunities.   

Be sure of broad experience  

Corelli Consulting specializes in bio-manufacturing and bio-industry - from industrial enzymes, chemicals and plastics, energy and fuels, to food, food ingredients and nutraceuticals. We also work in biomedical with medical devices, diagnostics, drug development and stem cell therapies.

Our approach leverages our technology and commercial skills, and our deep understanding of supply and value chains from feedstock to final product. Our experience in working on both sides of the coin – opportunity and risk assessment – will provide you with the peace of mind of a thorough assessment of your venture.
