Tegumen Introduces Industry-First Venture Integrity Program for Startups and Venture Capital Firms

Tegumen’s Venture Integrity program is a holistic security and risk mitigation support module for US-based ventures. This proprietary advisory service is designed to provide independent, external guidance, enhanced accountability and resilience to start-up organizations, and increase investors’ confidence.

The offering extends to relevant risk domains such as information and physical security, compliance, threat & crisis management, due diligence and workplace culture. With a combination of embedded resources and independent oversight, the program affords startups and VC firms with risk intelligence analysis & mitigation competencies, solutions, and leadership support services which are often unavailable or ignored in early-stage or fast-growing ventures.
