Abstract

There is evidence that some boards of early investor-backed tech ventures propel them to the next stage of growth, whilst some others leave founders and shareholders question their effectiveness. Although the research on venture boards has grown considerably over the past ten years, very little is still known about what goes on within the boardroom, especially during the crucial early stages of venture development.

This extended abstract paper consolidates the preliminary findings of an exploratory grounded theory study into the director experiences on early boards of investor-backed tech ventures in the UK. Early results offer a fresh take on the relationship model between board attributes, board role and company performance.
