Building Company Board Focus of MIT Enterprise Forum

'The Board Game' will be presented Wednesday at the Cabrillo Pavilion Arts Center

The MIT Enterprise Forum Central Coast will present “The Board Game: How Entrepreneurs and Investors Can Make a Difference with a Board” from 5 to 8 p.m. Wednesday at the Cabrillo Pavilion Arts Center, 1118 E. Cabrillo Blvd. in Santa Barbara.

Building a great board is a critical component for success for any innovative company. The experience, contacts and governance of the right board can make all the difference and give the entrepreneurial venture a significant competitive edge. Our area is a hot bed of innovation and is also the home of many current and former business leaders who can offer an enormous amount to young companies.

Pascal Levensohn, M.D., of Generation Advisors and Levensohn Venture Partners will be the presenter. Jim Schraith, president of Board Evals, will be a panelist, and the moderator will be Frank Foster, managing director of Draper Fisher Jurvetson Frontier.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
