The Impact of Bankruptcies – Deeper than You Think

James Brown, Founder and Owner,

In the year 2023, more than 18,000 businesses filed for bankruptcy, which affected over 400,000 creditors. Such bankruptcy filings can have significant impacts on your company, and it’s crucial to be aware of the potential risks. If one of your customers files for bankruptcy, it can negatively affect your business, and the impact can even extend beyond that if your customer’s customer also files for bankruptcy. In this session, we will delve into this topic in greater detail and learn how to use data to uncover the hidden effects of bankruptcy filings on your business. It’s important to take proactive measures to safeguard your company and arm yourself with the knowledge you need to mitigate the risks and protect your business in the long run.
