About Risk Alternatives

 Do you want best-in-class results for your organization and your customers?
  • Do you like to learn?
  • Do you try to improve all the time, both personally and professionally?

If you answered yes to those questions, we might make a great team. 

My name is Ted Bilich, and I founded Risk Alternatives. We work with nonprofits, startups, and small businesses to help them grow and succeed. Why? Because the best communities build value on a foundation with two pillars: scalable startups to create jobs and wealth, and sustainable nonprofits to provide essential services for those in need.

Risk Doesn’t Have To Be a Four-Letter Word. Risks can be unsettling. It is easier to focus on what’s urgent while ignoring what’s necessary and important. But if we can create ways to make it easier to see and address threats and opportunities, we can

  • Increase clarity,
  • Reduce costs,
  • Simplify tasks,
  • Streamline processes,
  • Develop new initiatives, and
  • Increase sustainability and resilience.

We Solve For Risk. That’s what we do. Hiring Risk Alternatives can make an immediate difference in your operations. We put simple insights in place with your team to increase your awareness of the threats and opportunities faced by your organization. You learn to identify unnecessary costs and find fixes to unlock additional resources. You increase alignment with shared objectives. We serve as coaches, accountability partners, and sounding boards as you implement these changes. In short, you receive our brand promise: clarity, peace of mind, and value. We live our purpose and values every day.

Here are some of the ways our customers have expressed their worries:

  • “Too much of our knowledge is stuck in the minds of our key personnel. If we lose any of them, we’re sunk.”
  • “If we’re honest, we move from crisis to crisis and can’t get ahead of the curve.”
  • “We want to grow, but we need a repeatable model that doesn’t require constant supervision.”
  • “We are on the cusp of great things, but we need to make sure we look and act professional to the outside world. More than that, we actually need to be professional.”

Does any of that sound familiar? Then listen to what customers have said about working with Risk Alternatives:

“[Risk Alternatives] identified numerous areas where the company could reduce risk, achieve efficiencies, make its operations more professional, and establish a foundation for continued growth and stability. . . . We got more than our money’s worth.”


“Ted was brought in to provide advice about a potential set of issues and was able to help get us back on track in a short amount of time. Though his knowledge and experience are extraordinary, it’s his approachable demeanor that makes it such a pleasure to work with him.”


“We hired Risk Alternatives because we needed advice and problem-solving concerning nonprofit governance and risk management. Ted was prompt, professional, and worked with us to resolve our issues quickly. He gave us tremendous clarity and peace of mind. He was also able to identify other resources for us so that we could further professionalize our organization. We got much more than our money’s worth. I recommend Risk Alternatives very highly.”
