This is really good advice.
It’s funny – there is no training on how to be a good board member.
I have read some books – there are not many on the subject.
I like this one :: https://seedvc.blog/2018/04/27/startup-boards-book/
Wonder if there are others.
I keep trying to get better at this and this is why I have always said that VC is an apprentice trade. You learn via doing and it helps to have some folks around you who have done it that don’t mind mentoring. I can’t possibly grok everything so I have to do it to learn which means I am making mistakes as I go.
Good tips in the post – moving to notebooks with a pen is a big one I try to adhere to. Makes you think more and pay more attention to the meeting.
