Overview (Program Summary)
Corporate governance issues are often overlooked in early-stage growth companies, overshadowed by operational, go-to market, and other build-the-business activities. It’s the all-too-familiar story of the urgent crowding out the important. A focus on a strong board, good alignment between the board and the executive team, and clearly defined roles of the board and individual board members that allow for evolution over time is essential to healthy growth, particularly for tech companies with the potential to disrupt a market.
Our discussion will include planning in advance for the “known unknowns” and the “unknown unknowns,” through table top exercises and other tools to help cope with everything from cybersecurity breaches to pandemics. This program will examine the most important – and often thorniest – corporate governance issues that companies should be thinking about.
