Early stage governance as an essential driver for short- and long-term challenges facing an early venture

Installing a pragmatic and balanced early stage governance is a major value driver to promote the development of the company and ensure its sustainability. Our keynote-speaker Charlotte Valeur, ecoDa Board Member & past-Chair, Institute of Directors says: “Implementing good governance, … does not have to be difficult or costly. It offers lots of upside and little downside.”

This webinar will give guidance and practical recommendations on how to better cope with the challenges of living with venture capital investors and corporate venture funds. Early stage governance plays an important role to achieve the founding team’s ambitions, innovation and goals.
Entrepreneurs should set up proper governance before being forced to do so by external circumstances; a well-chosen governance can reassure the startup team in their leap of faith and can bring, amongst other:
  • A better understanding of risks through the contribution of complementary skills and experience
  • A strong motivation in rigour in budget monitoring and analysis of deviations from the budget
  • Better preparation for the entry of new partners, like investors.

 

Do you believe good governance has its own value? If yes, listen to our multi-competence mentors and use the opportunity to seek guidance with regard to your corporate governance challenges.

Key note – The importance of strengthening the ESG-driven approach to governance for investors and entrepreneurs
