New CEOs face many issues when starting at a new company but the relationship with the board does not have to be a challenge.

Dear Boardsi, Thank you for helping me find a board seat. I am grateful to be a part of the startup that came my way through your opportunities platform and worked closely with my Success Manager to secure this position. Serving as a board member already, I am happy to start a new side career as a supervisory board chairman. I look forward to working where I live in the UK for a company based in the US and will create a presence and expansion here in Europe. I spent about 5 months on the platform and it was worth every day of it to have this opportunity. At this time pause my account, as I will not be able to take on any other ventures at the moment. Again, thanks for your great support throughout this journey.
I'd recommend this approach to any proactive executive trying to secure a board seat and enrich their experience level and have the opportunity to use their skills helping other companies succeed. They helped me find interviews with companies I would not be able to find elsewhere. I am really looking forward to what else boardsi can align me with.
boardsi has sent us numerous resumes for people to fill our Board position. I was able to find a candidate who had an interesting background and lived nearby. My interview with him went well and we have engaged him. I expect him to be a contributor in one way or another. I like your service as compared to the headhunters who pretend to make a deep study of your situation to find the person who is just right.
Tom Cook is the Director of Business Services for Boardsi and truly an amazing business colleague. Boardsi, along with Tom, works tirelessly to connect executives such as myself with board positions in companies who wish to revolutionize their businesses. They have been instrumental in connecting me with like-minded boards and individuals, which has accelerated my career and has given both advisory boards and executives the ability to take companies to a new level. I am honored to be working with individuals like Tom and the new boards I will be assisting.
Thank you, Tom, I truly appreciate your time and efforts in locating board opportunities for me.
We are an early stage automotive startup. I got an email from boardsi asking if they could help us set up our advisory board. I spoke to Tom Cook, Director of Business Services at boardsi and literally within 5 days I was speaking to eight different senior executives. These executives had backgrounds in engineering, executive management and the law. They were exactly what I had asked for and the boardsi staff bent over backwards setting up appointments and following up with me. Few businesses truly understand service. I continue to work with boardsi for their access to top people and professional conduct. Service is everything.
When building out a board of directors for a startup it is important to have the right people and that is the challenging part. An organization can look from within, hire a headhunter or use a company like Boardsi. Boardsi is a low cost asset to organizations that are looking for high caliber individuals that have already been there and done it.
The market is saturated with conversations about how to get funding for new ventures. Instead, we'll be discussing challenges faced, how to scale, and ultimately how to succeed once you have an MVP or a product in the market.
SUCCESS... WHAT IS IT? HOW DOES ONE EXECUTIVE BECOME MORE SUCCESSFUL THEN OTHERS? IT IS VERY COMMON FOR PEOPLE TO LOOK AT TOP BUSINESS LEADERS AND WONDER “WHAT DOES HE/SHE HAVE THAT I DON’T?” OR MAYBE “HOW DID THEY GET THERE?”
Often times busy executives wonder the best method for networking. Is it in person, over the phone, or perhaps online? Some might think that it is an either-or situation, but it is not.
It happens all the time. A founder surrounds him or herself with a skilled group of advisors — maybe one or two from investors, a trusted mentor from their past, perhaps someone influential who can open doors.
