Board Effectiveness:  How An Advisory Board Can Enhance Your Company's Performance

Wed., Nov.  16, 2011, 8 a.m.
Cleantech InnoVenture Center in Lynn

You’re invited to a hands-on presentation from Attorney David Gibbs of Bowditch and Dewey, who’ll offer key insights into the big advantages that the right board can offer a start-up.

An Advisory Board can be a key component of your company's success. An advisory Board can provide strategic advice, act as a sounding board, providing input on key business decisions, industry trends. It can extend contacts. And offers the valuable experience of members who've successfully met the challenges you face.

Gibbs will answer the key questions:
  • What is the difference between a Board of Directors and Advisory Board?
  • What type of Board and members are needed for your company?
  • How do you recruit, retain and should you compensate the Board members?
  • How do you work with a Board, communications, time commitment, meetings, confidentiality and engagement with your company?
The discussion will be interactive.  With real-life experiences.

As a friend of NSIV, we want to see you succeed.  The seminar is free.  All current NSIV incubator members, candidate companies, sponsors, mentors and advisers are invited.

Coffee and networking at 8 am.  Presentation at 8:30.
Seminars are always the 3rd Wednesday of every month at 8 a.m. at: Cleantech InnoVenture Center, 20 Wheeler St. Lynn, MA 01912
