  • Why entrepreneurs bring benefits to corporate boards

    The Wall Street Journal - 05/01/2016

    According to a recent research paper, smaller companies that appoint entrepreneurs to their boards see a number of positive changes. Their stock prices shoot up more than expected in the days following the announcement. Their revenue-growth rates are higher than those at companies that appoint non-entrepreneur directors. And a measure of long-term company value moves higher than at the other companies.

    If you have a smaller company and you’re looking for directors, it would be a good idea to look for someone with a background as an entrepreneur,” says Olubunmi Faleye, a professor at Northeastern University in Boston and one of the researchers.
