Ideal Board Member

November 19, 2020 by investor

Board members are a key part of a growing startup.

Building out the board is an important step in setting up the company for success.

Here are some characteristics of an ideal board member:

– They come prepared to the meetings having read the material and done their research.
– They have an open dialog with the CEO and other board members in between the board meetings.
– They understand the CEO and adjust their approach accordingly.
– They make efficient use of time with short and to-the-point questions and discussions.
– They prioritize and focus on the important things.
– They encourage others to participate and speak.
– They follow up after the board meeting to make things happen.

Finally, they have experience and steadiness in times of crisis.
