Add value to your company by building a strong board
Could your business benefit from an independent board?
Like many successful business owners, you may have started out with no board at all—or with an informal group of family, friends, and associates who provided guidance on key issues. Even as your company continues to grow, you may hesitate to establish a formal board for fear of losing control.
Still, as your company reaches a certain size, you may find that you don’t have all the answers—instead, you require advice and perspective that goes far beyond what you and your closest advisors can offer. Particularly if you are in a fast-growing, rapidly changing industry, you may need insight into more complex competitive issues and specific areas of expertise, such as law, finance, public company accounting, and international markets.
That is why Summit Partners—a growth equity firm for rapidly growing companies—is offering a complimentary white paper entitled, Building an Effective Board: A Guide for Growing Companies.
This informative paper discusses all the ways a strong board can add value to your company, how to structure your board and recruit outside directors, which committees you might consider establishing, and how to run meetings and communicate with your board for maximum success.
