We believe that having a strong board of directors is critical, even for early stage companies
In an early stage business, you may not have been part of a board before - it may be unclear why you need one. Isn't it just extra bureaucracy that gets in the way of getting stuff done?
We believe that having a strong board of directors is critical, even for early stage companies. The board is where you focus on the strategy - identifying what you are trying to achieve and working out how you can succeed. It can be hard to operate at the level - it's so easy to get sucked into day-to-day operational challenges, solving immediate problems, managing email, talking to customers etc. Having an occasional space to step back and look at the bigger picture is critical - this is what a board provides.
We can help here - in an early stage business we can run the first few board meetings and show how to get the most out of them. In more developed businesses, having experienced external voices on the board is critical - we can bring outside perspectives to add to the decision making process. We are experienced non-executive directors and Chairs - we can work with your board on one-off issues, or eventually become regular members of the board, helping to direct the business
