In brief: In collaboration with the KPMG Board Leadership Center, NACD produced Building a Foundation for Growth: Governance in Investor-Owned Private Companies. The handbook examines the governance styles and board-oversight practices employed by private equity-owned, venture capital-backed, and other third party investment firms.

This resource can help board members of these companies:

  • Understand the respective roles and expectations of investors, directors, and the CEO
  • Clarify governance protocols and board-operating processes
  • Navigate boardroom dynamics
  • Create incentives and mitigate risk
  • Position for an eventual exit or capital transaction

Most relevant audiences: Directors, and general counsel of investor-owned private companies
