Hello, this is Hall T. Martin with the Startup Funding Espresso -- your daily shot of startup funding and investing.
For board meetings, it’s important to prepare properly.
Set the meeting schedule well in advance, such as a year.
Prepare documents far enough in advance so the members have time to read the materials and prepare for the meeting.
Use a standard format for the board package so the members can find things more easily.
Use the board package to give the status updates and focus the meeting on the key decisions to take.
Set up the meeting agenda to cover the most important topics first.
Include the company financials including cash position.
Include a slide deck for the talking points.
In crisis situations, you may need to call additional board meetings such as when the company runs out of cash unexpectedly or gets hit with a lawsuit.
