- Board members and scale-ups CAN engage outside of the Advisory Board sessions for deeper discussions.
Participating scale-ups are required to present the following at least one week prior to the meeting:
- A one pager document outlining:
- An overview of your company
- Progress and updates from the last meeting (is this is your first board meeting then show your progress to date)
- A summary of the challenges ahead
- Are you looking for funding?
- Are you having issues with your sales strategies?
- Do you need introductions?
- What is next for you and your company?
- Where do you want to go and how will you get there?
