A wide range of questions such as “What are the pitfalls we should be aware of when forming a company?”, “What’re the things that a business should protect”, “How do you plan expenses and allocate funds for future expenses?” etc. were directed at the panelists. The answers given to the audience were varied because of the different industries the panelists are from.
