      Chris Sloan: What to Expect From Directors — And What Directors Expect From You

      GUEST MENTOR Chris Sloan, attorney at Baker Donelson Bearman, Caldwell & Berkowitz:  An independent director has the same voting rights and fiduciary duties as any other board member.  Most independent directors will expect the company to provide directors and officers liability insurance in addition to more equity than an adviser (typically 1% per year or so for startups). ...

      Joanne Wilson: Keep an Open Seat for an Open Mind

      JOANNE WILSON:  Building a solid group of advisers is the first thing an entrepreneur should do. More than likely those advisers are going to come from the people who invested in you.

      Gary Schall: Board Directors Should Be Like Top Athletes – Balanced and Agile

      GUEST MENTOR Gary Schall, counsel for corporate practice group, WilmerHale: Balance and agility are terms often used to describe top athletes – as in the controlled and quick movements of a star tennis player, the steady grace of an Olympic gymnast or the swift force of a champion wrestler.
