Investor Connect Podcast

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

The board leader can make the board meetings more effective.

Here are some points to consider: 

  • Set up meetings that don’t conflict with holidays or heavy travel schedules.
  • Send out the board package in time for review.
  • Focus the agenda on the top issues.
  • Demand the attention of the board members and discourage distractions.
  • Facilitate the discussions to ensure the topic is well covered.
  • Make sure everyone gets their say.
  • Extract an action plan from the meeting so the company can move forward.
  • Board members have a fiduciary duty to the company.
  • They must put the board’s interest above their own.
  • They must act in good faith with no ulterior motives.
  • Finally, the board member must exercise good business judgment.

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