The Startup Advisor
Posted by rbpasker on August 7, 2007
If you look at my linkedin profile, you’ll notice that I’m listed as “Member of Technical Advisory Board” to a number of different startups. In fact, at least 1/2 of my time over the past few years has been dedicated to helping startups as an advisor, and it has been a tremendously worthwhile experience, both personally and professionally.
Over the next several posts, I’ll cover most of what you’ll need to know about the advisor role, including defining the role, finding advisors, negotiating compensation, and working with advisors. This should be of interest not only to CEOs and founders, but also to those who would themselves become advisors.
