Scaling up through advisory boards

Sydney Startup hub
High-growth founders typically interact with a range of business experts, consultants, growth mentors, and advisors as they progress through each successive stage of growth.
Leveraging the value these experts can bring to your startup through an advisory board or structure, and having the flexibility to customize that structure as needed to suit your purposes, can be a valuable asset, not to mention a very cost-effective way to those experts around you. It is even more important to ensure that this structure is safe, impactful and actually delivers value.
