Building great boards
How do you build a great board of directors? In this module you'll learn about building great boards with the four stages in creating high exit value.
Stage one will be building a great company, starting with a great board. Stage two will be board confidence, guidance, and wisdom for CEOs. Stage three will be the five resources that great boards supply, and we'll talk about what those are when we get to that stage, and finally, stage four will be planning and executing the liquidity event itself. So, let's begin.
