  • How to compensate your advisors (monetary, non-monetary and types of equity-based compensation)
  • How to associate them into your organization with the right legal documents and communications and change management strategies to minimize disruption and achieve greatest effectiveness
  • How to leverage your advisors for business development, networking, process development and more
  • How to constantly evaluate and evolve the board as your organization grows
