57. Startup Boards, Part 1 (Mahendra Ramsinghani)

The Full Ratchet Podcast on iTunesNick Moran Angel List

Mahendra Ramsinghani joins Nick to cover Startup Boards, Part 1. We will address questions including:

  • What are the key functions of a board and why should entrepreneurs put one together?
  • When is the appropriate time for a startup to begin assembling a board?
  • What is the ideal makeup of the board at the early stages… how many members and what roles?
  • Who or what type of individuals should entrepreneurs recruit when creating a board for their business?
  • What types of decisions should they be included in, and what decisions should they not preside over?
  • If the founder needs to pivot the business and it’s a significant orthogonal pivot, is that something the board would vote on as opposed to a tangential pivot?
