Investor Connect Podcast

Hello, this is Hall T. Martin with the Startup Funding Espresso -- your daily shot of startup funding and investing.

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.

Thank you for joining us for the Startup Funding Espresso where we help startups and investors connect for funding.
