ICUBE Advisory Board Meetings
Jun 19 @ 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm

ICUBE Advisory Board Meetings

For our most engaged scale-up companies, ICUBE creates an Advisory Board composed by 3-4 mentors with industry and start-up experience.

This is how it works:

  • The Advisory Board meets every quarter
  • The scale-up has one hour to present its updates to the board and ask for advice and/or help
  • Board members will provide feedback, advice, access to networks, technical expertise, strategic advice, etc.
  • 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?

 

Please email Ignacio Mongrell if you want to be considered to participate on the Advisory Boards.
