Trying to build a start-up company? Trying to get a product or service to market? Trying to recruit key players? Trying to raise capital? If you face these questions in your early stage company, and run into roadblocks and unforeseen obstacles, you may wish there was someone on your side, who’s “been there, done that”, to offer useful advice. It can get lonely at the top, and a Board can offer a key supportive resource. Whether that Board is just an informal group of business advisors that meets with you at a restaurant once a quarter, or a board of technical or scientific advisors, or a formal board of directors, having and using a board can offer access to contacts, expertise, information, experience and advice. It can serve as a key resource at the most critical times in the life of an early stage company. The three speakers on the panel for this ENET meeting have all been directors and advisors to numerous companies in various life science, high tech, consumer and other product and service fields. Two of the three speakers are also active angel investors and all have been CEOs, so they will offer both management and investor perspectives on building and serving on boards. They will discuss recruitment and the benefits of informal advisors, more formal boards of directors, and other “sounding” boards focused on marketing. The panel will also suggest tax, legal and compensation techniques for cash-strapped start-ups, discuss liability issues of directors, and present the investor perspective on how creation and use of a board adds value, as you seek to raise money for expansion. The meeting moderator will be ENET chairman and Boston startup attorney Robert Adelson.
