This post will cover a presentation outline and discussion for what I believe is a solid starting point for best practices in a typical, periodic board presentation by a start-up CEO. These days, early stage companies tend to have monthly or every-other-month meetings; more mature companies rarely go longer than a single quarter without a formal board meeting. Because the goal of a the board book and the board meeting is to clearly communicate the state of the business to board members, over the course of 2-3 hours, such that board members are equipped to perform their duties.
i’m now updating the sample investor pitch deck and discussion as well as the sample board presentation deck. I’d love to get any questions, suggestions, or just things folks would like to know / see in either deck. thanks.
