Companies with an advisory board attract investors easier, perform better and are less likely to fail
"As a founder, you are faced with challenges that you can’t manage on your own. An external sounding board has a great value in this situation.
Sirris gave us insights and helped us to define how a balanced Advisory Board could be for Foodpairing. A few weeks later the first advisory board was a fact."
"As a startup, an advisory board is sometimes a step into the unknown. When you finally find a good team of entrepreneurs for your advisory board, you obviously want to come across and get the most out of your advisory board.
Sirris not only helped us find the right composition, they also advised us on the structure and agenda so that the right items were covered. If you do not know where to start, you must be at Sirris! "
"Sirris helped Skryv to attain these growth objectives by setting up an advisory board, which consisted of 3 excellent consultants with a huge knowledge and broad network.
The - rather challenging - quarterly meeting is as a mirror that shows us how we did. It inspired us to take the next step in our journey.”
