Entrepreneurs should be aware of changing regulations as they are a big component of barriers to entry.  If a regulation changes rules significantly, than it can be either a challenge or opportunity for entrepreneurs hoping to enter a market.

Changes in commercial environment within an industry can impact participants in difference ways.   Some changes may be easy to adjust to, some may change an industry significantly.  Market Leaders have a separate team to monitor and plan management actions in the legal and regulatory environment.



Regulations can be a source of opportunity, as they make a major part in the determination of barriers to entry.  An industry or practice is difficult to enter if there is a significant amount of regulative procedures and requirements, versus when restrictions are removed an opportunity may be presented.  In this way we are doing our small part to encourage an informed people.

We start from modest beginnings but continue to identify, develop, and research opportunity and strategy for entrepreneurs, to better develop business ideas.
