Presented by the Edmonton Chapter in partnership with the Calgary and B.C. Chapters: Join us for an in-depth look at startup and early-stage boards with two entrepreneurs, a venture capitalist, and a seasoned startup board member as moderator.

  • Value of a board (advisory or fiduciary) at the startup and early stage of an organization.
  • Board transformation from startup to scale-up.
  • Directors’ role in financing the business.
  • The skills startup directors need, and the differences in being a director on a startup or early-stage company versus a mature company.
  • Where directors can find opportunities.
