The research topic of boards of directors in companies in general and in startups in particular has been addressed by several disciplines including, management, finance, and organisational behaviour. This developmental paper reviews and reflects upon a selection of core corporate governance theoretical frameworks that have been extended to study boards of directors in the context of VC-backed startups, including agency theory, resource-dependence theory, team production theory and emerging behavioural theory of boards. The discussion will serve as an input into research design of a study into processes, working relationships and dynamics of startup boards.
