About the Event: On March 3, i2E will address the issue of Corporate Governance for Entrepreneurs in the second in a series of entrepreneurial workshops.
Entrepreneurs must negotiate myriad challenges in building a high growth company. From constantly evolving market dynamics, to daily business demands that stretch employees’ abilities, to an ever shifting regulatory environment, it takes strong intellectual capital to understand and respond to these issues in a timely manner. The insight and guidance provided by a seasoned Board of Directors is an essential element in successfully overcoming such obstacles.
In the words of legendary Silicon Valley venture capitalist Eugene Kleiner: “a good board of directors will give you better advice than your mother.”
As a result, board member selection has become a critical and refined process. A well thought out and purposefully chosen Board not only represents shareholder interests but also creates a competitive advantage and is a strategic asset to the company. A high-performing, strategic and independent Board of Directors provides effective corporate governance that steers high growth companies toward accountability, transparency and a successful corporate presence.
About the Presenter: Corporate Governance for Entrepreneurs will be presented by Entrepreneur-in-Residence Bill Botts, who has more than 48 years of management experience as President, CEO or Chairman of the Board of more than 15 public and private companies.
Mr. Botts has focused primarily on the high tech arena including software, computer systems, semiconductors and services. He has been active in recent years with companies requiring turnaround help in both the high tech and consumer products segments. He has served in director roles for public and private corporations as well as philanthropic and non-profit boards.
